Windmills are generally used to harness power of wind to perform mechanical work as well as generation of electricity.

Applications of windmills are as follows –

  • Large Scale Electric Power Generation- Huge numbers of windmills are installed on a single site called as wind farms to produce large scale electric power from wind.Small Scale Electric Power Generation- Single windmill can be installed in remote locations to produce electricity, where connection to the general electric network is not available
  • Pumping Water for Irrigation- Windmill is used for pumping of water from the well for agricultural purposes.
  • Milling Grain- Windmills are used to grind grain, cut wood and supply water in some locations where electricity is not available.
  • Windmills in Warfare- Initially, windmills were used as watchtowers because they were constructed on the tops of hills or mountains.
  • The energy produced by windmill does not generate any pollution, which is an infinite source of energy.
  • As windmill generates energy from wind it does not require fuel.
  • It does not create greenhouse gases.
  • It does not produce toxic or radioactive waste.
  • It is also used for driving all sorts of mechanical devices for manufacturing.
  • Windmill is generally used to convert wind energy into rotational energy with the help of blades.
  • Windmills provide energy to windpumps, hammermills, saw mills and paper mills for obtaining fresh water from underground.
  • In current scenario windmill technology is at its best and the wind turbines promises to be a vital alternative to fossil fuel.
  • Energy produce by windmill is cheap.
  • It is a renewable energy source.
  • When wind energy is produced it does not create any ill effect on environment.
  • Wind power is the cheapest source of energy that is available in current arena.
  • The operating cost of windmill is very low.
  • Wind energy provides jobs in production, maintenance, research and installations of windmills, as windmills are becoming popular.
  • Windmills produce electricity at 5 cents kilowatt per hour.
  • Current windmills with 2 or 3 thin blades connected to a long pole type base add a more modern aesthetic to land.

The transitional phase between summer and winter is called as the Spring Season. This is the period when temperatures start to rise, snow starts to melt, leaves bloom and flowers blossom on plants and trees. Some of us decide to paint the interiors and exteriors of our houses during this season before the onset of summer. Certain Institutions find it convenient to renovate their facilities during the season of spring before the commencement of a new business year.

Alcohol fuels also known as bioalcohols are generally are of organic rather than petroleum sources. All over the history alcohol has been used as fuel in spite of fossil fuels, which have become the leading energy resource for the modern world. There are actually four various sorts of bioalcohol: methanol, ethanol, propanol (propane) and butanol (butane). Let’s have a look over each one of them broadly.

Alternative fuels are advanced or non-conventional fuels which are produced from domestic materials or substances that are good substitutes to the conventional fuels. In order to reduce the world-wide mounting reliability of imported oil and pondering about the environmental concerns, national government recommends all the inhabitants to reinstate conventional fuels ingestion with alternative fuels.
