Think you know everything there is to know about wind power? 
It may come in handy to know your wind turbine facts, as the wind energy industry is booming. Throughout the globe, the amount of turbines more than quadrupled between 2000 and 2006, with global capacity was reaching over 70,000 megawatts at the end of 2011. To put this in perspective, in the United States, where citizens are notorious for their energy consumption, a single megawatt is able to power 250 homes. European and Asian countries are in the lead with usage and reliance on wind power, and industry experts predict that at this rate, wind power will be responsible for a third of the world’s energy by 2050.
