Wind power and solar power are two different sources of energy. Wind power is harnessed from the wind with the use of turbines to generate electricity. It is available throughout the day. This is a big advantage that wind power has over solar power. Solar power involves the conversion of energy from the sunlight of electric energy through solar radiation (sun rays). This can be done via the use of solar panel which directly converts sunlight to energy or the use of heat from sunlight to generate electricity.

This is available during the day when there is sunlight unless the solar panel has the ability to store energy. Otherwise, electricity has to be sourced from another means when it is dark. With solar power, there are no moving parts; this is not the case for wind powers as the turbines move continuously to generate energy. This means solar power requires less maintenance compared to the maintenance of wind power.

The Golgi apparatus considered the 'UPS shipping center' of the cell because it functions just like the UPS shipping unit. The Golgi apparatus is also known as the Golgi complex or Golgi body. It is one of the organelles found in a eukaryotic cell. It packages and ships out modified proteins and lipids to other organelles in the cell or outside the cell.

After protein synthesis is completed, it is transported to the Golgi apparatus for secretion. The Golgi apparatus has a number of glycosylation enzymes which helps to attach specific sugar monomers to the proteins. After protein modification is completed, the proteins are packaged into membrane-bound vesicles which helps to transport the protein to their target location either within or outside the cell.

Wind power is usually extracted mechanically. The wind turbines will make sure that they will get the wind from the environment and convert that into electricity. For solar power, it is a bit different as the power comes from the sun. One of the popular ways to get solar power is to extract the power from the solar panels that can be properly converted into electricity.

Another difference between the two is that wind can be available throughout the day, but solar power can be available only during day time as this is the time when the sun is present. One major advantage of wind power over solar power is the amount of land that it would need in order to provide a huge amount of energy. Solar power would need a lot of areas so that it can supply the same amount of energy that wind power can provide.

Wind and solar power are known to be two of the environment-friendly sources of energy right now. Wind power can usually become available with the help of different wind turbines that are typically located near a body of water because this is where the wind can be powerful. The wind can help build electricity that can help power up different homes and establishments. Solar power comes from the sun.

There are some residential homes and commercial buildings that installed solar panels so that these panels can absorb the rays of the sun and convert that into electricity that will surely be used by many people. These two alternatives are starting to become more popular all over the world.

Wind and solar power are both alternate forms of energy. They are the two most popular alternatives, which help cut down on pollution. With wind energy, the energy is generated through wind turbines. There are three types of wind energy, which include utility-scole winding, offshore wind, and distributed wind. With solar energy, the energy is generated by the sun., which is one of its drawbacks.

This is because in times when there is no sun, energy will have to come from elsewhere. Wind energy is more cost effective, as solar energy requires solar panels that can cost thousands of dollars. However, solar energy makes less noise, compared to the wind turbines which are noiser when producing energy.
