From old Holland to farms in the United States, windmills have been used for pumping water or grinding grain. Today, the windmill's modern equivalent - a wind turbine - can use the wind's energy to generate electricity. Wind turbines, like windmills, are mounted on a tower to capture the most energy.
This is direct wind-to-water power, a mechanical means of moving water. As technology advances, more farmers are installing modern windmills that convert wind into electrical power; the electricity can then be used to irrigate crops. ... They also share water with their neighbors."Aug 11, 2017
