We’ve Got Wind But

Lots of electrical generating windmills exist, but are they good for local atmospheric environments after conversion of wind energy to electrical energy—wind to rotational mechanical energy exchange; thereafter, stripping the wind content of something?

We know there exists a balance of atmospheric moisture content related to ground moisture content; it follows, wind has a contributing factor with these above- and below-ground moisture averages over time balances.*

I think this: would be an interesting live study applied to operational wind farm utilizing 3-blade windmill electrical generating towers group; for example, at the elevation of windmill blades have a Relative Humidity (RH%) data logger placed before the wind impacts the windmill blades and RH% data logger placed to measure the air after passing through the windmill blades; as a result, look a the difference between RH before and after RH% data logger; thereafter, analyze real time acquired and recorded data during operation of the windmill under various wind loading conditions. Relative humidity might be a better indication of ability of air to carry moisture and any differences after the wind energy is converted to mechanical rotation of windmill blades? Does the prevailing wind RH% change as a function of wind speed, rotational speed of windmill, and after energy conversion by windmill rotational blades—The question to answer: is RH% measured before- and after-passing windmill blades different? What is lost that comprise RH% is different?**

There seems to be more things to learn as we move into new areas of applied science discoveries,
