HOW YOUR LOCAL WIND FARM PRODUCES POWER
Whilst thousands of people across the globe are involved in the harnessing of energy from the wind, for many, wind energy remains a mystery. So, in celebration of Global Wind Day (15 June 2023), Kangnas Wind Farm would like to explain to communities, in and around the Northern Cape, the basics of how electricity is produced from wind turbines. This will also explain why communities that have close-by wind farms still experience load shedding.
