Default Wind Energy

I am planning on making a wind turbine that I found online. It is a homebrewed idea. I am just wondering what you folks think about it and any other projects to try, or that you have done.

Cheers!

We have a few houses in this area with solar panels on the roofs of the houses. It's a real interesting setup.

Looks really nifty being at that one is easily dismantled and would be quite nice if you travel the country in an RV.

That setup isn't all that expensive. If you look at his price list it only is about nothing for him as he seems to have a lot of it on hand. But, I am guessing that it will cost me about 50-75 bucks for it all. I don't need the most high end stuff for right now, this is just a beginning.

As for what I am going to power, I am not sure as of yet, but, i am thinking of trying to set up all my computer stuff off it as some point. Or maybe use it at my camp to power the place.

Cheers!

maybe if i made them a lot bigger. This one is only rated at 1000watts. I would need something that can generate like 6Kw or more to even have a dent in my energy bill.
