Working closely with natural resources every day, those in the agriculture industry tend to have an interest in switching their operations to a greener approach to energy dependency at some point. Green electricity isn’t a new concept to the agriculture industry by any means. It’s actually the original power source of these endeavors, long before the mass producing of electricity became widespread. Green electricity is energy provided by natural resources, such as the sun, wind, water, etc. While solar energy is often the most talked about, wind energy in particular certainly isn’t a new idea. It’s been used for over 2,000 years in a variety of ways and can be used to power very large operations easily and cleanly, and the larger the operation, the more need there is for a sustainable form of electricity. Wind energy is generated by wind turbines. Woofter Construction has provided complete wind turbine installation service for years, constructing turbines in Kansas, Iowa, and Colorado, and our team is prepared to help you next, but first, here are some reasons to make the switch.
Why Use Wind Turbines on Your Farm?
So what makes wind turbines on a farm so great exactly? In a nutshell, they’re a win-win: a win for you and a win for the entire planet. In one smart decision, you can save big both for yourself and the environment in a number of ways. Working in the agriculture industry often means you need a lot of electricity to power your operations, electricity that’s depleting resources quickly every day. Energy generated by wind turbines provides a solution that helps the many. Let’s take a closer look.
How Using Wind Energy Helps You
Choosing to have your farm depend on a natural energy source may be one of the best things you ever do for your business. Wind energy is highly reliable and sustainable. It’s limitless, unlike solar energy which can quickly deplete as used. Wind turbines are also cost-effective, offering a favorable return on investment due the immense costs saved over time by no longer depending on grid-sourced electricity. Turbines also last a long time and don’t need backup systems, and they’re extremely low maintenance. You also can’t miss a wind turbine, so everyone that passes your farm will see your commitment to sustainable energy and using natural resources, and you may even encourage other farmers to do the same. Plus, when you work with our team at Woofter Construction, the wind turbine installation process is quick and hassle-free for you. We can lay a cement foundation and install the turbine relatively quickly, not inconveniencing your operation for very long at all.
How Using Wind Energy Helps the Planet
Wind energy is a blessing to the environment, as it doesn’t drain dwindling resources. You can’t run out of wind, it’s 100% non-polluting, and produces no greenhouse emissions. Wind turbine electricity doesn’t contribute at all to global warming or acid rain, making it a purely clean source of energy. This route also reduces risk of radioactive exposure for other due to removing the connection to nuclear power plants.
