Windmills (Interesting article)

What do you think was the original purpose of the first windmills built? For water supplies? For grinding grain? For energy? Congratulations, you guessed wrong. The first windmills appeared for the sound of the organ in Ancient Egypt. Scientists have found in the records of 150-200 BC a description of a musical instrument played with the force of the wind.

In Europe, the construction of windmills began only at the beginning of the nineteenth century. The Dutch loved the ancient Egyptian invention so much that they built over nine thousand windmills to pump water and grind grain.

When the atom, coal and oil appeared, the wind industry began to fade against their background and gradually fade away. But at the end of the twentieth century, the problems of environmental pollution made themselves felt and the use of environmentally friendly wind energy became popular again today.

The technologies for the construction of these mills are described on a construction site called stroyrubrika.ru, which is known for its informativeness in the construction field.
