The pros of wind energy

Wind is one of the fastest growing energy sources in the world, so it offers many advantages and pros, such as:
Low cost wind energy is suitable in terms of cost, as it is one of the lowest-priced energy sources available, as the cost of wind energy is equivalent to 1 to 2 cents per kilowatt / hour, and wind farms sell it at a fixed price for a long period of time, it can set a fixed price for a period of 20 or 30 years, for example, unlike the price change that can occur on conventional energy sources.
Job creation the wind energy sector creates many jobs, for example, in the United States, this sector employs more than 300,000 workers, the job of a wind turbine technician there has become one of the fastest growing jobs, and statistical reports indicate that by 2050 wind energy will provide more than 900,000 jobs in the United States. In the United States, wind energy projects represent annual investments of more than 10 billion dollars in the US economy.
A source of clean fuel wind energy is not like power plants that rely on burning fossil fuels; like coal or natural gas, which produces harmful particles, substances and gases such as; nitrogen oxide and carbon dioxide, which causes many health problems and economic damage. Wind energy, on the contrary, does not cause pollution and does not produce atmospheric emissions that cause acid rain, gases, smog that increase global warming.
In the last ten years in the United States, wind power capacity has grown by 15%, so wind has become the largest source of renewable energy there.
Wind is classified as a form of solar energy, as wind is produced due to the sun raising the temperature in the atmosphere, in addition to the rotation of the Earth and the unevenness of its surface, which means that as long as the sun shines, the wind will blow, and therefore it is sustainable and renewable.
