Wind energy has been harnessed since humans put a sail on a boat thousands of years ago. It has also allowed windmills to turn and create energy to grind grain, pump water, and after electricity was invented, create electrical power to light remote buildings. In the photo, the Heartz Family are using their small windmill to pump water used on their farm in East Royalty.
