How to Build a Wind Turbine to Save Money on Energy

 


Visitors: 298

Building a homemade wind turbine will save you tons of money on your electricity bill every month. I saved $150 a month ever since I built my own wind turbine. Constructing the wind turbine is not hard if you have the right parts.

How A Homemade Wind Turbine Works

A wind turbine works by using the momentum of air to spin propellers. These propellers rotate a shaft on a motor generator. The generator transforms this into electricity. The electricity generated is transported to a holding battery where it awaits use to power your home. You'll need an electric control system to make sure you don't overcharge the batteries and so you can sell unused electric to your local electric company.

How To Build A Wind Turbine

You'll need various parts in order to build this turbine. I highly recommend getting a detailed guide that outlines exactly what you need to get going making this. However the underlining parts you'll need is PVC piping or wood to make the propellers, you'll need a tower, batteries, electronic control system, and a rotating mount for the turbine. A detailed manual will explain the entire process of where to get each of the parts and how to assemble them. This project is really easy to do with the right guide.

Wind turbines work best in 8 mph wind zones. They will work as long as you have just a little wind but its important to understand the more wind the better off your turbine will be. I recommend also going with homemade solar panels to supplement your wind power.

Reducing your dependency for foreign fuels will greatly cut costs. Energy demands are only going to be increasing in the future. Wind and solar power are becoming the only feasible way to suppress these ever increasing costs.

Learn about how I easily made my own wind turbine system and saved hundreds of dollars every year. Avoid spending thousands of dollars on wind turbine systems. My homemade wind turbine and guide can be found at MyHomeEnergy.org
