Easiest DIY Windmill For Producing Electricity Ever!

POSTED: December 11th, 2013, LAST UPDATED: September 18th, 2015

That’s right folks – those are snow shovels! The whole thing cost less that $200 to build… And if you think you’ll have difficulty getting some cheap snow shovels, Amazon is your friend.

Check out the video below to find out how to build this super simple windmill, that when connected to some kind of appropriate alternator, can generate 300 watts of power.

Actually I was just wondering how much an alternator costs VS purchasing a complete wind turbine system… I did a quick check on Amazon and the only alternator I could find was this one and it costs $449, BUT I found a complete wind turbine system here for $299 (mixed reviews though).
