Homebrew Wind Power


Have you ever wondered how wind turbines work and why they look like they do? Are you interested in adding wind power to your off-grid electric system, but have been put off by the high cost of equipment and installation? Well, now you can build and install your own wind turbine! Harnessing the wind can be a tricky business, but in this groundbreaking book the authors provide step-by-step, illustrated instructions for building a wind generator in a home workshop. Even if you don't plan on building your own turbine, this book is packed with valuable information for anyone considering wind energy. It covers the basic physics of how the energy in moving air is turned into electricity, and most importantly, will give you a realistic idea of what wind energy can do for you--and what it can't.

These blueprints are the perfect complement to our Homebrew Wind Power Book. Each component of the 10 foot turbine in the book is presented at actual size (100% scale, or whatever size you want) so you can actually have your local blueprint shop print you copies that you can cut out to make 100% scale fabrication templates, and extra copies for the workbench and to hang on the wall...They are handsome with 3D rendering and shading.

Note-You will need to work with your large-format printer or local print shop and make test copies to get the scale exactly right, measured with a scale ruler, because all printers and software vary. For example our last run had to be scaled at 99.89% by the printer.

We no longer print and ship these in tubes from here, as they were large to store safely and easily damaged in shipping. At 100% scale the prints measure 36 x 62 inches, but of course your printer or print shop can scale to whatever size you wish. All turbine parts are covered, and each is dimensioned.

flood damage

The September floods here in Colorado and 2012 forest fire hit us hard...with the extensive damage to our shop, we are no longer able to fabricate wind turbine parts and kits. We hope to restore production at some time, but we don't know when.

We are also still a full-service renewable energy system design, consulting, installation, maintenance and troubleshooting company, see our sister website Buckville Energy. If you are interested in a complete wind turbine kit, we can still provide these on a limited basis, time permitting. Please Contact Us for more information. High Park Fire photo credit Ward Erickson
