Most of us have seen the big wind farms that are out there in the middle of open areas. How is the energy they produce put to use?
The areas in the US which have the highest potential for wind are The Dakotas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska and a portion of Northern Texas.
For large onshore wind farms high voltage overhead lines are used to transport the energy. For offshore wind farms, submarine cables are used. This energy, once transported to major electrical hubs, is used in the same way that energy from coal and nuclear power plants is used.
“Energy” is not the same as “electricity.” Wind energy is used to generate electricity.
“Today, wind energy is mainly used to generate electricity.” Redundant, I know, but even the US Energy page says so.
