Provide a brief background     o Wind has been harnessed as power since at least the first century. Again, they were used to mill flower, and some windmills are still in use today.

These wind farms are connected to the grid and they supplement power production. Residential turbines can be installed in isolated locations. It is also common for people who wish to be off the grid to use wind power. o
