About Global Wind Day
When is Global Wind Day? This holiday is always celebrated on June 15
Today is Global Wind Day, a June 15 holiday. Celebrating this holiday is a breeze. Wind power is reshaping the energy scene. Wind farms are popping up all over the world. Solar and wind 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 wind turbines are going up every day in somewhere in the world.
Global wind turbine capacity reached 733GW in 2022, 136GW in the U.S. It currently accounts for over 9% of electric power generation in the U.S. As investment grows, the cost per wind turbine decreases.
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!
