“The arms of this windmill rotate as the sails are caught by the strong winds.”

Windmills are machines that convert the energy of wind into mechanical energy. They can be used to grind grain, pump water, and generate electricity. Windmills work by using the wind to turn blades connected to a rotor, which is connected to a generator. The generator then produces electricity.

Windmills can be found in many places around the world, including rural areas, coastal areas, and even urban areas. They are often used to generate electricity in remote areas where access to the power grid is limited.
