Wind Power explained as simple as possible

Think of wind power as a way to make electricity using the wind. When the wind blows, it turns the blades of a wind turbine, which generates electricity. The amount of electricity generated depends on the strength of the wind (average wind speed) and the size of the turbine (swept area). The peak performance is measured in Watts (W), but what really matters is how much electricity is produced over time, which is measured in Watt-hours (Wh).

Imagine a car: 

The maximum speed of the car is measured in miles per hour (Watts), but what really matters is how far the car can go on a tank of gas (Watt-hours). A wind turbine generates more electricity when the wind is stronger and when the blades have more room to catch the wind (larger swept area). But the wind isn't always strong, so the amount of electricity generated will vary depending on the conditions. It's cool to have a car that can go 200mph, but what car would you use for everyday-driving? Probably one with better mileage. It's the same for wind turbines, you'll probably want the one that delivers the most Watt-hours, and not just "top-speed" (Watts).
