Build a Wind Power Generator to Save Money on Energy

 


Visitors: 234

Energy is getting increasingly more expensive as the demand rises. Fortunately if you build a wind power generator you can end up saving up to 80% on your energy bill every month.

Building A Wind Power Generator

Making a wind turbine to power your home is much cheaper than purchasing a similar system. Already made wind turbines can cost around $4000 and up. A homemade wind turbine will only cost around $160-200. Wind turbines work by having moving air spin propellers. These propellers turn a generator shaft through resistance and generate electricity. This electricity is transmitted to a battery pack and then dispersed throughout your home when needed. Something cool about this system is that you can actually transfer back unused energy to the electric company and they will send you a check for it! How nice would it be for them to write you checks for a change?

You'll need several different things in order to build your wind turbine. You'll need PVC piping or wood to fashion the propellers. You'll need a generator motor in order to turn the wind power into electricity. You'll need a mount and a rotating base. A tower will also be needed to hold the turbine. Batteries and an electrical system will be used to store the generated power.

Putting your system together should only take an afternoon of working at it. Making sure you have the right parts is essential. Without the proper equipment you may have an inefficient wind turbine. I highly recommend getting a detailed manual on the entire process. As this will make the entire project ten times easier for you and you'll know exactly what to do and what you'll need. Some of the manuals out there are complete garbage however so be careful. You'll want a manual thats beautifully illustrated and goes through step-by-step what to do.
