There are many different types of wind turbines that people look at to build their own self-sustaining energy. This article gives you a better idea of the various types under the categories of horizontal and vertical axis windmills. You will see how each one differs from each other and see what the difference is between horizontal and vertical axis.
First, what are wind turbines? They are rotating machines that convert the kinetic energy of wind into mechanical energy. Basically, the wind causes the blades to spin and that energy is then able to be turned into electricity through a generator. Now the generator is located in different places depending on the type of windmill was constructed. Let's take a further look into what horizontal and vertical axis windmills are.
