Home Built Wind Generators

Half a decade ago, if you wanted to have your own domestic renewable energy supply then you were limited to having experts install it in your home for you. This would come at a considerable cost and it seemed to put a lot of people off. Current trends show that more and more are switching to renewable energy resources such as solar power, wind power and geothermal energy in a bid to avoid having to write off $400 of their pay cheque every month on utility bills that historically were just unavoidable.

So what's the reason for this new trend to renewable energy resources? Well, there's the obvious advantages that they save you money, and help the environment â but these were around five years ago too. The real reason is the advent of home kits that enable you to install your own renewable utilities yourself. Some even build their own saving even more money.

Perhaps the easiest utility to build is the wind turbine. People can actually build this within a couple of days and get it hooked up to a generator all for a fraction of the cost of what yesteryear. Obviously the effectiveness varies dependant on the environment â it's no good installing this where you are sheltered from the wind â it'll be a waste of time and energy.

So what are you going to need to build your own wind generator? Firstly you'll need a workshop with basic power tools to do the job and secondly you're going to need a bit of dedication. To give you an idea, wind turbines can range anything from 8 to 11 feet in height and can be literally completely from start to finish within a week. These can be built out of used car parts saving you the additional cost of materials.

Anything above 2 Kilowatts and it's an entirely different kettle of fish because the unit needs to be much stronger to withstand the pressure from the wind. You can still build these fairly quickly, and if you assess the cost savings against the time, effort and money spent on the project then you'd probably see that the cost-benefit ratio is stacks up nicely.

You'll need key skills â to weld steel and use a metal lather. Failing that you can hire a machine shop and get the necessary parts done there.

Before you undertake any project like this then you need to do appropriate research and take some advice from experts that really know what they're talking about. Indeed there are guides online that will walk you through the process, although you need to be certain that you pick the right one because they all come at a cost and some are far more detailed that others. Ideally, depending on your ability of course, you'll need a guide that walks you through the entire process without, and the process starts at determining whether your home is even suitable for wind turbines â it has to be said that most urban houses aren't.

Home built wind turbines seem like a lot of hassle, but once they're up and running you can save yourself so much money by living off the grid and reducing your expenditure. On top of this, your kids will thank you for preserving the environment for generations to come.

How to put on weight
For those of you who don't know, about 7 years ago I embarked on a journey to transform my body. As every teenager does, I had insecurities about myself and more specifically my body. Weighing only 130lbs at 175cm tall, I was pretty much the smallest guy in the year and it dented my self confidence greatly. So in my stupidity of youth, I went to the gym Rocky style for the next three years, pretty much training myself into the ground and getting no results. When you are young, you're...

DIY Solar Electricity
If you were to look at your yearly outgoing expenses, I'm sure that you'd be shocked to learn how much of what you spend is going straight into the pockets of your energy company of choice. As someone who likes to keep a close eye on the accounts, I figured out that I was spending somewhere in the region of 6 thousand dollars per year on maintenance outgoings such as water, electricity and gas. The fact of the matter is, I'm not rich and I could do with that money for other things; things...

Swindon Shopping and Culture
A stay in Swindon It seems funny to me that anyone would want to come to my home town of Swindon but I guess that's just because you always have some air of negativity about your home town having lived there for so long. When I actually take a step back and think about what Swindon has to offer to anybody who should find themselves here, then it's not really so bad at all. The town just seems to be the butt of jokes and is placed in the same bracket as places like Slough and Hull and with...

Passive Income Sources
What really frustrates me, and the reason why I'm writing this article in fact, is that as an employee of a company I get paid by the hour. Sure, the hourly rate is enough to pay the bills and go out at the weekends but it's not really living, is it. 5 days a week, I get up earlier than I would otherwise choose to, rush to work through busy and bustling streets to start another 8 hour shift that I don't get much satisfaction out of. The rat race sucks; Everyone strives for promotion, because...
