DIY wind turbine project goes open source


“Applied Sciences indicates Marohn’s intention for this project
was to reduce his water heating bill. So, he set out to make a wind
turbine that could harness the winds of the Pacific Northwest and
put the energy to work for him.

“The result is this wind turbine made of materials that you can
find at Home Depot and online. Applied Sciences provides what you
need to know to build one yourself, including some videos of the
turbine and its parts in action and some other valuable resources
that will help hopefully get the turbine connected to your home and
operating.”
