Wind power
We are debating about which power source should be used to generate electricity for the island and I am representing wind turbine energy and am here to convince the mayor to use wind turbine energy. There are many advantages to use wind energy.

how it works?
The energy in the wind turns 2 or 3 propeller blades around a rotor. The rotor is connected to a main shaft, which spins a generator to generate electricity.Wind turbines are mounted on a tower to capture the most energy. At 100 feet (30 meters) or more above ground, they can take advantage of faster and less turbulent wind.
Benifits
Unlike other sources such as solar power, which only works in the day, wind turbines not only work in the night but better. After manafacturing, wind turbines except for the cost of maintenance, they are free.Not only do they work all year but they are better in the winter.
They cause no pollution and is totally eco-friendly. It is a completely re-newable source.
It is the fastest growing energy source in the world. No waste is produced
Although wind turbines can be very tall each takes up only a small plot of land.

Negitive
Ths is really expensive to make. There are times when there will be no wind blowing. It is too noisy.
