We love this gust turbine design from Enessere. It has a futuristic and sophisticated appear with its sleek breeze turbine blades. It’s astonishing this design incorporated woodait doesnat get any greener than that. You can take this as an inspiration for your own homemade gale turbine.

9. Wind Generator with a Car Alternator


A sleek vertical wooden gust turbine like this looks great! Anything well-polished looks like a thousand bucks. Try this conventional chispito wind generator instead. It has wooden propeller blades with the efficient function of regular breeze turbines. With average engineering skills, you can make this project with a vehicle alternator in less than a day.

10. DIY PVC Pipe Vertical Wind Turbine


Saving on your energy bills can mean a lot, even if itas only a few bucks. Build a wind turbine from big PVC pipes. This horizontal axis wind turbine follows a savonius gust turbine design. You can power your outdoor sunlights and save a few dollars.

11. A Homemade Electricity-Producing Wind Turbine


Take this inspiration for a homemade breeze turbine from actual people who are living off the grid. Conventional wind turbine schemes use blades like how an electric fan runs. Check your place and see how the wind works there. If you have high winds, might as well take advantage of the wind energy. Build a gust turbine and get electricity going.

12. Homemade Vertical Axis Wind Turbine


If you have a limited space for a huge horizontal breeze turbine then a vertical breeze turbine is for you. With many gale turbine plans, a vertical-axis wind turbine is efficient, space-wise. Now youave got no excuse for running green with your energy source even if youave get limited space.

13. A New Saphonian Bladeless Wind Turbine


Imagine how a broad piece of cloth can power a large sailboat. That is where the idea for this bladeless Saphonian design for a gale turbine comes from. It boasts of generating wind energy twice as efficiently as conventional designs. If you get good wind in your area, imagine the energy generated by this wind generator.

14. DIY Vertical Wind Turbine from Washing Machine Motor


You can repurpose a broken-down rinse machine into this small breeze turbine. Use the washing machine motor to power this generator with PVC pipe blades. This is a vertical-axis gust turbine that generates wind velocity beyond the size. Start with this mini project and graduate to powering more than a bulb.

15. DIY Savonius VAWT


A DIY savonius breeze turbine( vertical-axis gale turbine) will save you time, space, and cash. All this is necessary are bearings, 2 pails, and some tube. To save more, construct your own budget-friendly VAWT from a broomstick( also included here ).
