DIY Wind Rotor

This guy builds a nice wind rotor for home power generation. He claims to get 1000 Watts Average in 20MPH Wind. Either way, the design is attractive, scalable, and doesn’t look like it will scare the neighbors too much. Check it out!

    It`s really nice to hear about such innovative and creative ideas especially that it contributes to the eco-friendly plans. Many people living in Toronto houses are very keen to remodel their home to fit more to this image and one feels really useful taking part in that. I would definitely recommend to them to check out this rotor, it`s always better to design our own appliances than to purchase it for incredible high prices.
