The Wind Turbine Recipe Book is a 65 page document that takes you through the process of building your own wind turbine for battery charging. Six different sizes are described from 4 to 14 feet in diameter. Every detail of the construction is tabulated and illustrated, from the wooden blades to the purpose-built permanent magnet alternator. Only basic workshop tools and skills are required. These recipes have evolved from thirty years of living off-grid and building small wind turbines. Over the last ten years I have taught workshop courses worldwide, and these are the notes used in the courses. Groups have sprung up all over the world using these recipes to teach others the process. Many people also use the larger turbines for feeding directly into the grid with grid-tied inverters.
