Wind Power

  1. Apr 19, 2010 #1
    The wind power that is generated using the wind mills in a wind tunnel like the crowsness pass can't be constant. How can the amount of wind be counted on because with gloabl warming maybe wind will not be as often in the future?

    "because with gloabl warming maybe wind will not be as often in the future?" The blades on a windmill have a variable pitch and they can spin with the same speed in light or heavy winds. I would think that wind speed would pick up during changes of climate.
    Where did you get your information?I don’t think this is correct.

    Don't worry, the wind will always blow through the Crowsnest Pass regardless of any climate change! Same as Lethbridge!
