Simple Backyard Wind Turbine DIY Project

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.

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.
