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.

    Well, would this not work better as a water turbine?
    I’m just not sure with how small it is that it’d be effective as a wind turbine.

    This type of wind turbine does not work very efficiently and has been debunked many times.

    LOL, I hope your generator comes with a gasoline engine attached.

    PPC marketing can be very successful if done right but that is
    very rarely the case because there is the misconception that more clicks equals more sales which is not always true.
    Then while you are building up and increasing your sexual stamina, go
    and have sex a lot. This is something you need to
    keep in mind when planning your event budget.
