Green DIY Energy
When the whole world is looking for ways to cope with our energy crisis, what is the least we can do?
We need to begin by conserving the power we have and generating even more power by using green renewable energy solutions like wind and solar technology systems.
The implementation of a wind turbine is not considered very cheap; however, it turns out that wind power is a huge money saver in the long run when the cost of producing this green energy becomes zero.
It has been observed lately that people are utilizing wind turbine power even at places with an average speed of less than 10 miles per hour. Ideally, the average speed of wind at the site you propose to set up the wind generator should be at least 10 miles per hour, but a slightly lower average is also reaping good results for people.
One thing that discourages people from setting up a wind turbine is the initial cost. However, one can set up a homemade windmill for much less than the price of a manufactured wind turbine. It is, however, important to consider certain things if you build your own wind turbine.
• Get a good plan to build a wind turbine at home. Keep in mind the output of renewable energy electricity you want the windmill to generate.
• Build your wind generator with sturdy components. Your homemade wind turbine should not get damaged by heavy winds. (Consider using a tilt-down tower in case of high winds)
• Research and compare the prices of the equipment and materials you will need and go for the components that suit your budget and the wind generator system you are building.
When looking for a windmill plan, look for the following features:
• Illustrations: Visual descriptions work better than text-only ones. If your windmill guide has illustrative descriptions or videos that show how to build a wind turbine, it makes your task so much easier.
• Easy language: If your diy wind turbine guide uses a lot of jargon and technical information, it is better to look for a different one. Look for a windmill plan that has easy-to-understand language which simplifies the process.
• Component descriptions: Your homemade wind generator guide should be able to provide you with detailed visual and textual descriptions of all the components you need to use and where to get them. It is also important that the guide explains what kind of parts and materials work best for your type of homemade wind generator system.
• Local information: If your guide gives you information about the best available equipment in Europe while you are reading it from a countryside location in Midwest USA, your guide is as good as useless. Look for a guide that provides local or regional equipment information.
