How to build a Simple Backyard Wind Turbine DIY Project is detailed in a step by step tutorial.
A turbine creates power from wind, saving energy. It is part of the eco-friendly movement, especially in places where wind is common. That’s why we see those wind farms in the agriculture sector, plus the famous windmills in the Netherlands. It just makes things a lot easier and simpler. It’s also a great DIY project to impress others.
Motor – Taken out of an old VCR player, old printer, old scanner, or bought on e-bay.
PVC Cutter – Use to cut 5′ 3/4 and 5′ 1″ PVC pipe down to size
3/4″ PVC Pipe – 1′ long or cut to your desired size
3/4″ PVC Pipe – 3″ long or cut to your desired size
1″ PVC Pipe – 1′ long or cut to your desired size
1″ to 3/4″ PVC Pipe Fitting Reducing Tee
3/4″ PVC Pipe Union
Plastic – We used an old CD case

Just like that, the construction is done, but it’s time to test it out. Go to the roof of a building, or someplace high where there is wind. Maybe just put it in front of the air conditioner and let the breeze do it there. If there is any malfunction, just double check where is where and try again. Otherwise, that’s it.
