Global Wind Day
Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always observed on June 15
Wind power is reshaping the energy scene. Wind farms are popping up all over the world. Wind and solar farms are taking on an increasing percentage of the world's energy needs. It is a clean, renewable, carbonless energy source. Hardly the source of a watt of energy a few decades ago, new windmills are going up every day in some part of the world. Over $100 Billion was invested in wind energy in 2014 alone!
Global Wind Day is intended to help us discover wind and its' power. Participating in this day is a breeze! Organizers hold open houses at wind farms, sponsor events and educational programs, to help us to better understand the value of wind energy.
We encourage you to participate in this special day in some way. Importantly, make some effort to support the development and installation of wind energy in your community.
Happy Global Wind Day!
