Wind turbines at sunset. Wind power is a renewable and clean source of energy for electricity production. The wind turns the blades, and this drives a turbine to generate electricity. These wind turbines are part of the Avignonet-Lauragais wind farm in the Haute-Garonne region of southern France. The wind farm consists of 10 Nordex N50 wind turbines, each generating 800 kilowatts of power. The turbine blades are 23 metres long, and are mounted on stands that are between 50 and 70 metres tall. This wind farm began operating in November 2002.
