Interesting Fact:

A flywheel is a cylinder that spins at very high speeds, storing kinetic (movement) energy. A flywheel can be combined with a device that operates either as an electric motor that accelerates the flywheel to store energy or as a generator that produces electricity from the energy stored in the flywheel.
These wind turbines near Lamar, Colorado, each can produce 150 megawatts of electricity.
