Wind turbines are typically about 120 metres high to capture stronger winds and their blades span about 45 metres.

The wind turns the blades of a wind turbine that is connected to a generator, and the generator converts the wind’s kinetic energy to electricity.
The amount of wind power in Australia is likely to increase in the coming years. Here are some interesting wind energy facts:
