Top O' the Windy Mornin' to Ya'll
It' is a Windy morning here in San Angelo, Texas,
but it's March and we try to make the most of the Winds Blessings here in Texas!
The old Wooden Windmills are becoming harder to find and most have been retired as working windmills.
During the 1970s researchers turned to windmills as an energy source. Due to the oil embargo and subsequent fuel crisis, the United States government increased funding for windmill research. In the 1980s the two types of modern windmills included horizontal axis and vertical axis. These new versions harness wind power and convert it into electricity. Today Wind Farms are a viable part of the Renewable Energy Industry.
