HERE'S HOW THEY DIFFER: Rotating wind turbines convert wind energy to electricity. Coal is mined and transported 1A to a power plant. A boiler burns the coal and forms YOU KNOW: 1в steam. Steam enters a turbine, turns a propeller and creates electricity. DID Wind turbines use a fuel that's free, inexhaustible and immune to drastic price swings. Cooling towers release heat from boiler steam (contributing to air pollution and acid rain). Wind energy produces no polluting emissions of any kind. A ONE WIND TURBINE CAN POWER 442 TEXAS HOMES IN ONE YEAR. OF COAL TO POWER ONE 14,509 Ibs. YEXAS HOME EACH YEAR. TRANSFORMER increases voltage and sends electricity to a substation.

New Leaf Energy provides energy that's both green and renewable. GREEN POWER RENEWABLE ENERGY represents renewable energy resources and technologies that create the least amount of pollution. relies on resources that naturally replenish themselves over short periods of time and don't diminish.
