How to Build a Wind Turbine for $30

If you think your $30 doesn’t buy anything good anymore because everything seems to be expensive, well here is some good news. There are still a lot of things that you could have for $30 and, believe it or not; you can even change the world. How and by what means could this happen? We suggest using wind turbine to generate electricity. It could be a start of something new and good in your life, and it won't have to cost you a lot of money.

We all know how expensive it is to go for renewable energy. It is a one time big time deal, and we get it, not everyone has that amount of cash to spend for it. But most of the time, a great deal of the expenses just go to the labor for installing the system. The price could be cut down if you are resourceful enough to think of something else just like what Marcin Jakubowski of Open Source Ecology did along with the creator of Solarflower, Daniel Connel. These men believe that we are all capable of having our own sophisticated technology only if we are given the right directions and if we could easily acquire the needed materials and tools for it. And with their determination and passion for this subject, they came up with a tutorial on how you could build your own wind turbine.

This project is made from completely recycled materials excluding the bolts and pop rivets, which cost around $15 to $30. Should you want to do this all by yourself, you can do it without exerting much effort in an estimated time of 6 hours. Now the question would be if it is safe for you to use it.

We'll let you formulate your own conclusion after learning more about this project when you check out the website “Sustainablog” below.
