Wind power refers to the extraction of energy from wind. Modern wind power is converted into electricity by converting the rotation of turbine blades into electrical current by an electrical generator. In traditional windmills wind energy is used to turn mechanical machinery to do physical work. Wind energy is inexhaustible, clean and mitigates the greenhouse effect. Wind power can be extracted large scale in wind farms and small scale for providing electricity in isolated areas.
