Wind Turbines have blades, just like an electric fan, but instead of using electricity to generate wind, the turbines do just the opposite. Wind rotates the blades, which spin a shaft connected to a generator and the movement leads to the generation of electricity. Thus, the kinetic energy of the wind is converted into mechanical energy of the propelling blades, which can then be used to do mechanical work like grinding grains, pumping water etc. or with the use of a generator utilized to produce electricity. Usually, to generate electricity on mass scale, many wind turbines operate together in a wind farm, forming a wind power plant. When you compare a conventional power plant with a wind power plant, and consider the impact they both have on the environment, a wind power plant seems like a far better choice for generating electricity.
