Build Wind Turbine
The technology to build wind turbine has been around for a very long time.
Windmills, the predecessors of todays wind turbine have been used for centuries to mill grain and pump water.
Since about 1790 windmills were also used in Europe especially in Denmark to generate electricity. At the time those wind turbines already provided 25% of the energy needed by the Danish industry.
Back in those days rich and entrepreneurial people asked the same questions as you and I ask today with regards to how to build a windmill or build wind turbine respectively.
The availability of cheap and readily available oil destroyed the windmill industry in the past.
Today our current energy crisis has led people to see wind power as a valuable natural energy resource. By using wind power we can cut down on our use of fossil fuels and reduce the harmful gas emissions into our environment.
All we need to harness this clean and renewable energy are some wind turbines.
So, how can you build wind turbine by yourself?
Well, the process is pretty simple.
Before you can start to build your own wind turbine it is important that you understand the technology behind the system.
A wind turbine has a number of blades that are attached to the shaft of an electricity generator. When the wind spins the blades around the generator produces electricity. The system is very simple but very effective.
With this knowledge in mind let’s find out how to build wind turbine.
The first thing you need is the motor for the wind turbine. You can either buy one or if you have some knowledge of electronics you can probably make one yourself.
Most of what you need to make a motor you can find at any scrap metal yard.
Once you have the motor you should also invest in some good oil as the motor in your wind turbine needs to be oiled regularly.
When you have the motor and scrap metal for the blades you can start to build wind turbine. However, if you want to carve bigger blades for your wind turbine you need to have a large enough workshop.
Many people find it easier to start learning how to build wind turbine by using special diy kits.
Over the past year or so a number of different wind turbine making kits have been developed and patented. These kits are especially helpful for people who cannot get all the materials together.
Many people choose this option to make their wind turbine. It is more convenient, you spend less time searching for the materials to make the wind turbine and you might even get a better result.
If you prefer to build your own wind turbine completely from scratch instead of using a kit, we recommend that you buy an instructional manual or book from your book store or online that shows you exactly step by step how to build wind turbine.
These guides are very helpful as they also give you instructions on making different sized wind turbines. You can find out exactly what dimensions the materials have to be to make exactly the type of wind turbine that you want.
Once you have learnt how to make wind turbines and if you enjoy the process you might even set up your own how to build wind turbine business.
Wind energy is quickly becoming a very popular way to generate electricity and more and more people will want to build their own wind turbine.
If you want to take advantage of this growing industry you should do so before everyone else gets the same idea. Your financial rewards might be plentiful.
