How to Build a 17-Foot Wind Turbine

flying17foot.jpgIt's 17-foot in diameter and its built from scratch. This is OtherPower.Com's latest project — a wind turbine with a 3kW+ output. Want to know how they built it? You can read about it here. The turbine charges a 48V battery bank in 5 MPH winds, is making 400 Watts at 10 MPH, and 1500 Watts in a 16 MPH wind. This photo shows it fully furled, producing maximum power of 3800 Watts. :: OtherPower.Com
