You may have already heard about the benefits of making and installing your own wind generator or windmill at home and are already thinking of making one yourself. The most important thing that you will need is a detailed plan or manual.
Why buy a commercial wind generator for thousands of dollars when you can easily build one yourself with a few tools and materials, spare time and an affordable and easy-to-follow plan. With less than $150, one can already make a good working wind generator with an output of at least 1000w.
Building a windmill is so easy that some people have installed three or more in their homes. There are people who have successfully removed themselves off the electric grid through the use of wind generators. Having a wind generator home will save you hundreds.
So what will one need in order to create his own wind generator home? As mentioned earlier, the most important thing is a plan or manual. This will be the basis of the design and structure of your windmill. You will need a decent-sized work space. A spare garage will do just fine. There are no special tools needed in making wind generators. Most likely, the tools you will need can already be found in your home. Having a helper or two will also come in handy especially when it is time to erect your windmill.
Before you begin working on your wind generator, you must first read and examine your plan thoroughly. The most important parts of a windmill are the blades. The materials to be used in making the blades will depend on the size of the windmill that you are planning to make. PVC and wood are two of the most common materials used in making the blades. Wood is the ideal material for bigger wind generators.
The importance of wind generator plans can never be emphasized enough. If you have a good plan, then you have already taken the first step in becoming less dependent on conventional energy.
