Wind Turbines:Build Your Own

What is your first impression of wind turbines? Do you think that the people who make them must be highly qualified technicians who have studied for years?

What would you think, if one of your neighbours said that they were going to assemble their own wind turbines in order to produce their own electricity?

The fact is that it is not really very hard to make a wind turbine. You certainly do not have to have been to university to do it and you do not have to be an amateur electrician either. You will, however, need a good set of plans in order to put up an effective wind turbine.

There are different sources of plans for wood turbines. You could go to a hobbyist shop, a DIY store or the Internet. If you look on the Internet, search for a web site specializing in alternative energy technology.

Once you have you instruction booklet, guide or plans on making wind turbines, you should study it well and get any questions you have answered on forums on the Internet.

If you believe that I am exaggerating how easy it is to build a wind turbine, do not forget that people have been building windmills and water pumps for hundreds of years without the advantage of power tools or contemporary materials.

The only difference between those early devices and a wind turbine for making electricity is the addition of wiring and a coil, which you will buy anyway.

The basics of building a wind turbine include constructing a tower to put it on; installing batteries to receive the generated power; the fan and the tail assemblies. The tools that you will require to accomplish this are fairly basic too: bricklaying tools, carpentry tools and a few spanners, but that really depends on how much you sub-contract out.

You will almost certainly have to buy the turbine, fan and tail section yourself as one element, because, if you want a high-powered unit, this section will have to be professional, not that it cannot be made locally.

You will be able to maintain it yourself as well, if you want. These fan blades can be 1.2 metres (4 feet) in length each, which is something that you will have to bear in mind when constructing your tower.

You may need a spot of professional help when you build your first wind turbine, but use the experience to learn as much as you can, so that you will be able to be more independent on your next one. You could even turn the experience into a profession, because there is a dire shortage of people who know anything about wind turbines.
