We at Energycentric are proud to offer sustainable, renewable or green energy in the following forms:
In Britain, we have enough wind to power the country several times over. Wind is caused by sunlight unevenly heating the surface of the Earth. During the day, air over the land heats up more quickly than air over the water, making it expand and rise. As it does so, cooler, more dense air rushes in beneath it, creating an air current.
Turbines harness this energy by working like an old-fashioned windmill with rotor blades that face into the wind. When the blades are spinning, they drive a shaft that is connected to an electrical generator by a gearbox. Most wind turbines produce electricity when the wind is blowing at 10-30mph.
Hydro energy is energy that is taken from water and converted to electricity. This can be obtained by using many methods of capture the most common of which is a hydroelectric dam, where water coming down through an area causes turbines to rotate and the energy is captured to run a generator
