HARNESSING
           THE POWER OF WIND
Since early recorded history, people have utilized wind energy. It propelled boats along the Nile River as early as 5,000 B.C., and helped Persians pump water and grind grain between 500 and 900 B.C. As cultures harnessed the power that wind offered, the use of windmills spread from Persia to the surrounding areas in the Middle East, where windmills were used extensively in food production. Eventually, around 1,00 A.D., wind power technology spread to European countries such as The Netherlands, which adapted windmills to help drain lakes and marshes in the Rhine River Delta.

So as you drive thru Kansas and see all the wind farms being built and generating electricity you can see that the technology has been around awhile, and the opportunities for skilled craftsman will continue to grow.
