Note: I get a lot of questions about this turbine. But I have included an entire video series at this channel showing exactly how I built this vertical wind turbine, all dimensions are included in the comments for each step. I've seen others attempt this design but completely miss that this is a WING LIFT type turbine. The fin angle, surface and material is all critical to making this work correctly. Using a drag configuration (as I've seen) will not work very well. This design just works so I would start by viewing the videos here at my channel first, this is not a difficult project. Best wishes for you and your build.
Homemade Vertical Wind Turbine mounted behind my wall and isn't visible from the street. Perfect turbine for HOA areas and in cities that won't allow mast mounted turbines. This is a wing lift prototype I'm getting some numbers from to create an improved designed. I believe these are the future of wind energy. I also have so other alternative energy concepts on the drawing board I'll post in the future.
