Wind energy can be an alternative source of clean and cost-effective electricity. For rural households with a good resource of wind energy, it is often a cheaper option than solar energy. As a basic guide, houses on the coast or on the hills of exposed rural land have better wind resources, and houses in urban or vegetated areas, far from the coast, have less wind. As is known, buildings and structures are responsible for the high consumption of electricity, water and materials.
Green and sustainable buildings aim to reduce the environmental impact of buildings and reduce energy consumption. One of the methods to achieve these objectives is to use a wind energy system. To design this system, large or small turbines (domestic scale turbines) can be used. The use of any type of turbines depends on the location, the wind speed and the structure of the building.
In this article, a construction model with a suitable wind turbine system is presented. Wind is a source of renewable energy. In general, the use of wind to produce energy has fewer effects on the environment than many other energy sources. Wind turbines do not emit emissions that could pollute air or water (with rare exceptions) and do not require water to cool.
Wind turbines can also reduce electricity generation from fossil fuels, which translates into a reduction in total air pollution and carbon dioxide emissions. Wind energy is essential to combat climate change, but the construction of turbines consumes a lot of energy and the blades are made of plastic. So how green is wind energy really? Les's house is an inspiring example of smart green building, and his plans for green living will maximize energy savings and comfort.
