  1. Thanks for this DIY project buddy! I have 0% complete on my windmill and checking on here to get started. Be nice to have a sexy pair of windmills for my backyard. I wonder about bylaw permits but free power is worth pushing for. Love your top notch vocab and keep up the GREAT work here. 🙂

    All the best from BC Canada! =)

  2. When you say motor I hope you really mean generator, right? For the life of me I do not understand. why you would want to power your wind generator with a moter.

  3. at jet stream heights the air is so thin and has so little mass even at 200 mph it won't have the energy to justify going up to get the wind speed.

  4. Another bullshit argument is how higher how better the wind! Air density goes down So 100KM/h Winds at a few KM up are not any better than A nice breeze compared to ground level generation potential.

  5. An awful lot of time/,oney/R&D goes into solar power and wind power, but very little is invested/developed in the field of solar-thermal. It seems illogical to generate electricity to heat water, when the sun can do it for us. And solar-thermal works on dull days too!

  6. i've been using my home made wind turbine for a while now and i also got some good result so i think for me it works well..

  8. Look up "energy sprawl" to understand the major downside of these machines. It gets glossed over in the media due to political-correctness and greenwashing. I can think of no other large construction projects that would get sanctioned like wind turbines. But protests are growing around the world as they reach critical mass and more people can't avoid seeing them.

  9. OMICS International cordially invites all the participants from all over the globe to attend the “World Congress and Exhibition on Wind Energy” at Berlin, Germany during June 15 – 17, 2016 with the theme of “Future Wind Energy Technologies”. Wind energy is extracted from air flow using wind turbines to produce electrical power. Wind energy as an alternative to fossil fuels, is plentiful, renewable, widely distributed, clean, produces no greenhouse gas emissions during operation and uses little land. The effects on the environment are generally less problematic than those from other power sources.This conference is all about Planning, Operating, Grid integration, Aero dynamic noise cancellation, Urban wind Energy promotion, and future prospects of wind energy. Wind Energy – 2016 will also include advancing international knowledge transfer in Ice monitoring and early protections, challenges and case studies of wind energy.
    Wind Energy – 2016 brings together experts, researchers, scholars and students from all areas of Wind Engineering, Electrical, Electronics Engineering, Control Engineering and other related areas, wind energy associations, generating Plant professionals, Developers, Wind turbine manufacturers.
    The global wind energy market was worth $130 billion in 2013 and $165.5 billion in 2014. The market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.2% between 2015 and 2020 resulting in $176.2 billion in 2015 and $250 billion in 2020.

  10. 80' super turbine produces 3kw? That's a joke compared to the current market. Each of the V47 turbines behind you produce 660kw and there are 36 of them on that site. How big and how many miles long will the super turbine need to be to compete with a site of V164 8mw? Cool idea and I'm glad people are coming up with new ideas but don't see this idea going anywhere.

  11. Since 1992, the federal government has expended almost $24 billion to encourage investment in wind power through direct spending, tax breaks, R&D, loan guarantees and other federal support of electric power. The Joint Committee on Taxation estimates that a one-year extension of existing federal subsidies for wind power would cost taxpayers almost $12 billion.

    The costs of wind subsidies are extraordinarily high—$52.48 per one million watt hours generated, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. By contrast, the subsidies for generating the same amount of electricity from nuclear power are $3.10, from hydro power 84 cents, from coal 64 cents, and from natural gas 63 cents.

  12. Have any of you hippies that seem hell bent on filling my planet with Eagle cleavers ever looked into REAL alternative energy?
    Start your journey by typing in your search engine ~ 'molten salt reactors' and discover the Thorium reactor and see how it ticks loads of boxes…..We need to get rid of our ADDICTION to Big Wind for the sake of our children.

  13. Wind Turbines can NEVER recoup the energy used to make, transport and erect them ~ the planets energy/ CO2 budget would be better off if they were never built

  14. not even close to the enegy that is needed and I will explain why
    he says his turbine produces 1 Kw but the average house needs 200 Kwh by month so he will need to use his invention for 200 hours with wind just to power 1 house at best he could power his own house save money

  15. I like purple shirt guy's enthusiasm, but I question the reliability of his invention. If it makes that much noise when it's small, I can only imagine how much stress the thing is undergoing. There's a reason the current windmills have gearboxes to make them spin slower.
