Are wind turbines very similar to hydropower turbines?

    Yes; in fact, they work on the same principal the alternator in your car works on to store energy in the battery.  The force of the wind or water causes propellers or “rotors” to rotate.  This rotational energy is then converted to electricity by spinning a magnet, which causes electrons to move along a wire closely coiled around the rotating magnet.  The energy is then stored in cells, or batteries.
