society more independent from using fossil fuels. This has been a very big topic as of recent and many different movements happening in America and around the world are focused on using our renewable energy, such as wind. This project is helping the succession of this idea and broadening the capability of turbines to reduce carbon footprints.

Wind technology is now commercially viable and cost-competitive in many locations. Wind power accounted for 42% of new capacity additions in the United States (second only to natural gas for the fourth year running) and for 36% of new installations in Europe in 2008. Around the world, 80 countries are using wind power on a commercial basis.

Wind energy is the energy which is extracted from wind. For extraction we use wind mill. Ii is renewable energy sources. The wind energy needs less cost for generation of electricity. Maintenance cost is also less for wind energy system. Wind energy is present almost 24 hours of the day. It has less emission.

90° about the fixed point, the windmill will look exactly the same. We say the windmill has a rotational symmetr y. Fig 14.12 In a full turn, there are precisely four positions (on rotation through the angles 90°, 180°, 270° and 360°) when the windmill looks exactly the same. Because of this, we say it has a rotational symmetry of order 4.
