That’s right folks – those are everyday off-the-shelf snow shovels! The whole thing cost less than $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. This windmill, when connected to some kind of appropriate alternator, can generate 300 watts of power!
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).
