Wind energy is just another form of solar energy. Sunlight when falls on the oceans and continents, it gets heated up and continues to rise, which in turn causes surface winds. The wind has been used by humans from time immemorial to carry boats and ships across the oceans. The wind energy is site specific as some places has heavy winds and some with low wind potential.
Now-a-days, this wind energy is used in rotating turbines of various sizes and capacities (from few KW to MW) in wind firms and already is generating a significant amount power from this source of Energy. India is now fifth in the wind power generation after Germany with a total wind generation capacity of 1870 MW till now.
