A wind turbine is a device that converts kinetic energy frae the wind intae electrical pouer. A wind turbine uised for chargin batteries mey be referred tae as a wind charger.

The result o ower a millennium o windmill development an modren ingineerin, the day's wind turbines are manufactured in a wide range o vertical an horizontal axis types. The smawest turbines are uosed for applications such as battery chargin for auxiliary pouer for boats or caravans or tae pouer traffic wairnin signs. Slichtly lairger turbines can be used for makin smaa contreibutions tae a domestic pouer supply whilst sellin unuised pouer back tae the utility supplier via the electrical grid. Arrays o lairge turbines, kent as wind farms, are acomin an increasingly important soorce o renewable energy an are uised bi mony kintras as pairt o a strategy tae reduce thair reliance on fossil fuels.
