Build an off grid wind generator out of a truck alternator. If you live off grid or even if you have a cabin or campsite that is off grid this tutorial will help you build a generator out of a truck alternator that can be connected to your batteries for storage. This way any time the wind is blowing the generator will be charging your storage batteries so that you can turn on the lights.
This awesome diy project of build an off grid wind generator out of a truck alternator is by Robert D. Copeland on Mother Earth News. The energy is stored in 6-volt golf cart batteries so for a very inexpensive build and set up that you can do yourself, you can have electricity at camp in just a couple of days. RD Copeland shares the instructions on Mother Earth News.
In the short video below you can see it working.
