Wind Generators For Home

Need an honest review of how to build a wind generator and what you need to do to make sure you get it right? Let me see if I can help!

First things first, I will tell you that I tried to find a bunch of free info over the internet to see if I could build a wind generator from scratch.

Well, that didn’t turn out so well. So what I did was purchased some wind turbine plans off the internet for about $50.00 and it made things a lot simpler for me!

For that one time price of $49.97 I had all the info right there in one convenient package that I could pull up on the computer. I was also able to print out the wind turbine plans so that I could take them out to my garage when I was in the building process. That made it much easier than tracking back and forth from my computer in the house to view the instructions!

It isn’t at all hard to build a wind turbine generator by yourself, but it makes it a heck of a lot easier if you have some experience with tools and a little knowledge about building stuff and what not.

I would imagine that the electrical part would be the most challenging for most people. The plans I purchased were very clear though, and they went to great effort to make sure they kept the novice in mind when they explained each step of the wind turbine building process.

The directions you get are really virtual blueprints that you immediately download to your computer…subsequent to you paying online with a credit card or paypal.

Once you get your plans, you will find that it will take you a few days to get all of the parts that you need before you can actually start to build a wind generator. After that, expect to spend a couple more days in construction and set-up time before you can actually start planning to see some results.

And what about results? First off, these are not the massive windmills that you see rotating on those wind farms that create gigantic amounts of electrical energy. These are simple rooftop wind turbines that are mainly going to supplement your house with an extra boost of energy from a renewable source that, in the end, will save you some money.

You are not going to be able to move off the grid by installing simply one of these to your home. It is possible though to put a serious dent in your energy bill if you were to also build a solar panel system on your roof top.

The plans I purchased also showed you how to do just that! You can build an install a series of solar panels that will produce large amounts of energy to help power your home and even heat your water!

If you are interested in building a wind turbine and/or solar panel for your home, it is really worth your effort to explore these DIY guides and build your own backyard power plant!
