The rising costs of energy production and the increased public awareness of environmental issues is leaving a wide gap in the alternative energy industry. Over the last decade, the demand for alternative and clean energy sources has paved the way for the steady development of wind energy. Today, nations have developed wind energy policies that greatly utilize wind power generators. Local energy suppliers and even small businesses and residences are also able to benefit from wind power generators.

The cost of energy production and transport is on a steady rise. Nations and localities are beginning to discover just how economical it is to supplement their energy resources by using large scale wind power generators and wind farms. Worldwide, wind power generators have proliferated more than five times over the last seven years. Global demand for cost-efficient productions has significantly contributed to this increase. Also contributing is the growing awareness of environmental issues. It is widely held that wind energy is considerably cleaner than other fossil fuel derived energy sources. Thus, the use of wind power generators is extremely practical.

Residences and small businesses are also seeing the benefits of wind energy. The installation of wind power generators are significantly reducing energy bills, while allowing individuals to contribute to environmental friendly efforts. Wind power generators can also directly put money into the pockets of the generator owners. Some states have enacted energy policies that mandate local energy companies to buy excess energy generated from local wind power generators. Thus, when a homeowner or small business produces more energy than it uses, the excess can be sold for profit.

Many companies sell wind power generators and DIY kits. Most conveniently, workshops, websites, books, and lectures are available for people interested in building their own wind power generators. With a little time, patience, and knowledge, builders can convert energy for personal use.

Wind energy is converted into a useable energy source (usually electricity) by the technology of wind power generators. The productivity of these wind power generators are highly dependent on positioning and wind speed. Generators positioned in the less obstructed areas with greater wind speeds produce more efficiently than others. However, the cost-efficiency of wind energy conversion can be severely diminished if the production of the energy is too distant from the demand center. Thus, wind power generators are most profitable at the local level with low transportation costs.

Thanks to environmental awareness and a high demand for cost-efficient energy production, the use of wind power generators are steadily proliferating and will be for years to come. As nations develop energy plans to accommodate for greater use of wind energy, and local markets continue to push for greater dependency on alternative energy sources, wind power generators are filling a gap in the alternative energy market.
