Easy to Build Wind Generator For Home

1) Wind generator blades

The best materials to use for making the blades are PVC or ABS pipes. They are light and strong, and also easy and cheap to get if you source for it smartly. I found a length of PVC pipe in the scrap yard.. gave it a little wash and it is as good as new.

2) Generator

I made use of a simple DC motor with a low RPM rating. A DC motor is usually used by feeding it electricity for it to turn its shaft. But by rotating the shaft in the opposite direction, you can make the DC motor produce electricity instead. It is that easy!

Search around for one in eBay to get the best price for your DC motor.

3) Generator housing

I took a bit of the PVC pipe I talked about earlier to make a sturdy and safe housing for my DC motor. One thing to note about using PVC pipes though – make sure you paint them with weatherproof paint so that your wind generator can last longer.

4) Tail vane

This part of the wind generator is used to turn the blades to face the wind flow. You can explore different types of materials to make the tail vane. I made use of some acrylic plastic sheet I found in my garage to build it.

5) Tower

A few pieces of conduit pipes joined together makes a good design for a stable wind generator tower. These pipes are easy to find in your hardware store and do not cost that much.
