How to build a Micro Wind Turbine

Clément Joulain has written a manual for building a one metre diameter turbine for 12-V charging using some of my basic ideas but adding some new ones.

Available from Amazon in Kindle format

“How to build a micro wind turbine” is a practical manual full of pictures, plans, tables and comments to learn how to build a 100W wind turbine and 6 metre tower from scratch, for less than 250 USD. The design is based on very reliable, efficient and easy to build Piggott’s turbines. This micro turbine with five blades is appropriated to power a boat, a shelter, a RV or an household in a developing country. A design to build a simple and low cost wind controller is included. The book “A wind turbine recipe book” from Hugh Piggott is strongly recommended as a complement to this manual. The units are international metrics.

About hugh

I live off-grid in NW Scotland and have spent my life playing with wind turbines. I also love small hydros. Hands on renewable energy is my thing and I like to learn and to share my experiences.
