Wind power is the use of airflow through wind turbines to mechanically power generators for electricity. Wind power, as an alternative to burning fossil fuels, is plentiful, renewable, widely distributed, clean, produces no greenhouse gas emissions during operation, consumes no water, and uses little land.

In 2012, the first wind power plant was set up in Slovenia (Dolenja Vas). The wind power plant is 97 meters high and the rotor has three 34-meter blades. The diameter of the rotor is 71 meters. The power plant has an installed power of 2,300 kW. The operating power depends on the wind speed.
