Wind Power.

Wind Turbine 1

Wind Power Projects.

The world's wind resource is huge. Global demand for electricity could be met by wind power alone several times over. The presumption, however, is that it is neither technically nor economically feasible to run power systems in which wind power meets most of the demand most of the time. That presumption is wrong. Yet it remains an enduring myth, also in wind energy circles, and is probably the single most damaging piece of fiction that could prevent the full potential of wind energy from ever being realised.


Renewable energy systems

A renewable energy system converts the energy found in sunlight, wind, falling water, waves, geothermal heat, or biomass into a form we can use, such as heat or electricity. Historically, renewable energy was used exclusively as man's energy source until coal was first used in the 13th century, oil in the end of the 19th century and uranium in the middle of the 20th century.
Using renewable sources of energy promotes sustainable living and, except for burning biomass, is virtually pollution free.



Case Electrical Services Can Make It Happen for You.

When you first have the idea to go green, how do you make this come true.
Case Electrical Services can take your ideas and make them a reality.

With our Solar and Wind packages,
We will Project Manage all aspects, from the Design to Installation and Completion.Wind Turbine 2

  • Integrations of the collecting devices,
  • the connection to your home or business.
  • We can connect you to the National Grid to sell back the excess energy you produce.

Grants are available from the government to install renewable energy systems.

Wind power and solar power are complementary in the sense that when a wind resource is not available, sunshine often is.  If both resources are available, then a hybrid system is the more economical approach.  A hybrid system uses fewer batteries and the battery bank is cycled less, which results in longer battery lifetimes and lower costs.




About Wind Energy


Harnessing wind energy was one of man's earliest achievements. Wind saverSmall windmills pumped water in ancient Syria and sailing ships used windpower to first circumnavigate the globe. The modern use of wind turbines originated in the 17th Century where the Renaissance Dutch used wind power to recover hundreds of thousands of acres of land by draining the Rhine River delta.
The classic Dutch windmill design predominated for 300 years, pumping water, grinding grain and sawing wood until the multibladed American Farm Windmill was developed in the middle of the 19th century. These machines covered the continent, pumping water on every farm and in every town until rural electrification (and rust) brought about their demise in the middle of the 20th century.







Wind Turbine systems


Wind is a form of solar energy. Winds are caused by the uneven heating of the atmosphere by the sun, the irregularities of the earth's surface, and rotation of the earth.Wind Turbine 3 Wind flow patterns are modified by the earth's terrain, bodies of water, and vegetation. Humans use this wind flow, or motion energy, for many purposes: sailing, flying a kite, and even generating electricity.

The terms wind energy or wind power describe the process by which the wind is used to generate mechanical power or electricity. Wind turbines convert the kinetic energy in the wind into mechanical power. This mechanical power can be used for specific tasks (such as grinding grain or pumping water) or a generator can convert this mechanical power into electricity.

So how do wind turbines make electricity? Simply stated, a wind turbine works the opposite of a fan. Instead of using electricity to make wind, like a fan, wind turbines use wind to make electricity. The wind turns the blades, which spin a shaft, which connects to a generator and makes electricity.
