Through a combination of graphics, animation, and interviews, this video explores the potential for increased production of wind energy nationwide. How can we use the power of the wind to provide for our energy needs? In California, wind energy is now generating enough electricity to meet the needs of a city the size of San Francisco.

The program begins with a brief newsreel-style look at the history of harnessing the wind, explains in simple terms how wind turbines generate electricity, and provides a first-hand look at several wind farms.
