Wind energy is created when the atmosphere is heated unevenly by the Sun, some patches of air become warmer than others. These warm patches of air rise, other air rushes in to replace them –thus, wind blows. A wind turbine extracts energy from moving air by slowing the wind down, and transferring this energy into a spinning shaft, which usually turns a generator to produce electricity.
