Wind Turbine –  wind power for cheap

Daniel writes in with a DIY wind generator made from a roof vent turbine, it’s a little unclear how well it works – but a neat idea…

“We have been looking for a low cost turbine to use for our project. All we had to do was look up on the roof.

These turbines are dirt … all » cheap and can be bought at any good hardware store. Come Spring we will be installing a generator and taking it for a test spin, pun intended”Link.
