GRAPHIC: How wind turbines work

The science of wind power is astonishing, but for the everyday person, it’s possible it could come off as a little boring. Save on Energy, an energy rates comparison company, set out to solve that by creating a fun and animated infographic that explains the science of how wind turbines work.
And not only does it do that, but it also offers up some interesting fun facts about wind turbines. Did you know some turbines stretch up to 300 feet in the sky? And that the first turbine was created in 1888? Well, now you do. Your next road trip past a wind turbine farm will be a lot more fun after checking out the infographic below.
