Building your own wind turbine can be both a very fulfilling experience or a disappointing exercise.
High powered wind turbines are difficult to build well, and take much refinement and experimentation.
If you do wish to build your own - we recommend starting small by purchasing one of our detailed plans as a start.
Wind turbines are difficult to build even for experienced engineers so please be aware of the journey ahead.
