Wind Fact Heaven (+ Wind Energy Charts & Graphs)

I finally went and did something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time — I created a Wind Energy Facts page here on CleanTechnica.

Yes, we have had a World Wind Power resource area for a long time, but that is much more editorialized and is simply aimed at being fairly introductory.

When I am aching for a wind energy fact, I can often recall an article title about that and then find the relevant article and wind fact, but that’s not always the case and I imagine that’s normally not the case for most of our readers. So, I’ve finally created a very focused page with lists of various wind energy facts. Check it out, bookmark it, share it with others, and comment on it if you have an extra fact to throw in there or if you have a request for one or more facts not yet included. That page will be updated regularly.

Of course, people love charts and graphs, so I’ve tried to include those wherever possible. Right now, I’ve got 14 charts and graphs included over there. Head on over to check them all out. I think these are my three favorites from those fourteen (when it comes to the topic of wind power):

I also want to create an EV Facts page like this… but I have no idea how long it will be until I get to that. And I have created a similar solar energy facts page, with the style just being a little bit different.

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
