DIY Wind Turbine Plans Instructions Building Wind Turbine


Visitors: 5,203

All you need is a good set of diy wind turbine plans in order to build your own. There's really no reason to buy a wind generator considering that you can build your own 1000w home wind turbine for under $150 including the plans.

Our family has built 3 now for our own off grid home and are sure you will have no trouble building your own either.

What will you need to get started?

  • A decent sized garage or shop
  • Diy wind turbine plans
  • A good helper (it makes a great family project)
  • Simple tools available in most households, no special tools

    Where do you start?

    First off, after examining the plans you will see that you need to order a DC motor to be used as a power generator for your home. The blades turn the motor in order to produce power.

    It takes a few days to be sent directly to your home so don't hesitate to take this action first.

    While you are waiting for your DC motor to arrive you can get started on the other parts as outlined in your diy wind turbine plans. The instructions building wind turbine clearly show that the blades can either be fashioned from PVC or wood, with wood being preferred for bigger machines.

    We have had good luck building wooden blades from spruce we got from the lumber yard. It is strong and not that difficult to find good clear lumber.

    You do need good quality lumber as the forces of the wind, especially at blade tips when they are 8 foot diameter can be tremendous, in the hundreds of pounds.

    Don't worry about the wind turbine blade construction being complicated either? Your set of blades can be made easily in one day with common tools.

    We were excited to learn that most of the other parts could be obtained free including batteries, towers and all of the body parts.

    When the DC motor arrives, put everything together and get it up there in the wind. You will need a location that is about 15 feet above anything within about 300 feet, so most areas this won't be a problem with a recycled 40 foot TV tower. They are available free as we mentioned.

    Isn't it time you got started producing free electricity for your home?

    Let's get started now.

    DIY Wind Turbine Plans are the way to go to build your own wind generator and instructions building wind turbines is pretty easy to follow too, the diy wind turbine plans - the answer to your family's energy needs. Find diy wind turbine plans was the place for us to start with our off grid home.
