When thinking of building your own wind turbine for your home, you will find that there are a lot of web pages and books that can offer you homemade wind turbine tips. And you will find that it is not as complicated as it seems to build your own wind turbine and also that it is a lot cheaper than hiring a professional to install it for you.
Before you start building your wind turbine it is very important to make sure you have all of the necessary materials to do so. These materials include blades, hub, generator, rotor, tower, gearbox, yew drive and motor and low and high speed shafts. Other parts are also needed and that is why it is a good idea to research first before you start building.
Also it is a good idea to know how much energy you are going to need, to be able to build the right turbine. This depends on the energy you use on a daily basis in your home or wherever you are going to build your turbine. Find out how much energy you currently use and it will be easier to calculate the energy you are going to need.
Make sure that you wind turbine has enough space to be able to operate properly. By building it on a land where there is nothing around the turbine, then nothing is going to get caught on the tower or blades and therefore cause your tower to malfunction, break or damage something that is close enough to it, this includes telephone lines, trees, buildings etc…
Wind turbines can produce enough power to charge up a family household and even though it is a lot cheaper to build one yourself, it is advisable to invest in quality materials and a good step by step guide that you can understand properly. There is no point buying a complex guide that you are not going to understand and in the end it is a waste of your time and money.
You can find a lot of help on web pages, that include easy to read guides and videos that will help you through the process of building your wind turbine. From how to buy the blades to how to find a good charge controller. If you research first and know what you are doing you will not only be saving money on your tower but also saving money on you electricity bills.
