About Me

My name is Neville Pettersson and I have created the this site to help regular home owner’s like me make their own

energy at home. For more info about me check out the about page here. You can also follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Google+ and Pinterest.

This page is all about how to get your very own DIY wind turbine for the least amount of money possible. The fact that you're here indicates to me that you are obviously wise to the fact that most of the franchises and businesses offering these services are really ripping us off. A DIY wind turbine can cost you as little as $150 dollars if you get the right advice and know what you're doing.

To make your own wind generators for home use you definitely need a top of the line tutorial, preferably one which comes with all of the written information you'll need, plus videos and some form of support mechanism. All of the guides listed in our Top 10 list (right), offer exceptional quality, that's why they're there of course.

DIY Wind Turbines

With DIY wind turbines you have
two options.

You can either buy ready made kit set windmills for electricity and install them, or you can buy all of the parts and put it together yourself. Whatever you choose to do, you're going to end up with pretty much the same unit in the end.

The only difference is that kitset wind turbines for the home will cost you a lot more because of the convenience. The price difference is about 500% - 1000% depending on the size of the wind turbine. In other words, a unit which you buy for $1000 will only cost you around $200 if you buy all of the parts separately and out them together yourself.

DIY Wind Turbine Plans

The cheapest way to get your own DIY wind turbine is to make it yourself. This is the method which we recommend because of the cost effectiveness and control you have over the unit.

Basic Steps To Make A DIY Wind Turbine

Here's a
quick rundown on how to make your own DIY wind turbine. The basic things you'll need are a generator, windmill blades, charge controller, batteries and either a tower or roof to mount the unit. If you buy these parts separately along with a guide the set up will be easy for you. Things only get complicated when people try to make the generator and / or charge controller themselves from scratch.

There are some sites, like mdpub, which tell you how to make these parts yourself, however this isn't really necessary unless you've got some pretty serious engineering tools. The only parts you'll need to construct yourself are the mounting, which can be affixed to your roof, or on some other stand alone structure. The mounting can be made out of some timber, like a 2 x 4 and cut to the specifications of your components.

The blades get fixed to the front and the generator sits tightly in behind. You'll need some wire and maybe a protective housing for the generator, depending on where you live and your weather conditions. It really is simple to make your own DIY wind turbine once you see the plans and get your head around it.

If you’re a novice, don't try and build any of the components yourself.

The technology for domestic windmills for homes has developed greatly within the last decade, making wind generators for home use very easy to slot together.

If you do it right, it's basically like plug and play.
