Asked in Windmills
Why do you use windmills if you have dam?
People use a lot of electricity, and often need to obtain it from many different sources in order to get enough. It is also true that windmills have other uses than the generation of electricity, and they were in use centuries before electricity came into use. You can mill grain without electricity, by connecting millstones to an axle, which is turned by the wind.
