Wouldn’t it be great to use these windmills throughout the world to harness the power of the wind? I’ve seem them in Germany too but I’m not sure who else uses them.
How would these devices work in a hurricane environment? Would they stand up against the ferocious winds?
Maybe someone smarter than I can share some light on the subject; but I was thinking of ways people without electricity – like those affected by Hurricane Michael, could use power generators like windmills – probably on a smaller scale.
However, I understand it would not be safe to generate power while the grid is not safe. But maybe there is something that can be done to have power more available in respective communities or in homes – while being safe.
While traveling from Kansas to Colorado at night we could see red lights spread out everywhere. First thought was maybe they are alien landing lights across the open plains. Well, I knew better, and confirmed they were windmills. I was impressed with the red lights though.
Well, during the day we could see how massive these windmills are. They amaze me. I could just sit there and watch them. To me, they seem so peaceful, maybe hypnotic.
When we think about the power of the wind – like in a hurricane – it is so destructive and doesn’t provide much value to quality of life. However, wind is power and provides power for good to those who receive the benefit – like from the windmills.
Let’s keep harnessing the power of the wind for power – and quality of life.
