ELECTRIC POWER FROM WIND. Wind motors as power generators for. use in agricultural and, industrial pursuits are increasing inr Denmark. Motors with four wings have given the best results, as a smaller number of wings does not fully, utilise the wind power, while a .larger number acts detrimentally' upon, the wind .cur rent between the wings, If a medium large wind motor is used with' a wing surface of about 48 square metres (a metre equals about 3ae'.inches), eight horse-power is obtained at a wind vel ocity of six metres .a second. ' At a velocity of. eight metres. the horse power is more, than doubled. Since 1903 there has been in existence the Danish Electricity ' Company, from whose agitation 30 larger and smaller wind-power electrical equipments are in operation, throughput Denmark.
