Onshore Wind

Onshore wind turbines capture energy from the wind and produce electricity using long, rotating blades that drive a generator located at the top of the tower behind the blades. Onshore wind energy is among the fastest-growing utility-scale renewable energy technologies in the country. The best wind resources are located in areas that receive strong, sustained wind speeds 50 to 80 meters above the ground.
