This is the up to date build process for the OpenSourceLowTech.org $30 Lenz2 vertical axis wind turbine. The turbine can be made almost entirely from recycled materials with basic tools in six hours for $20-35. It is tested at 35-40% mechanically efficient, generates 130 watts mechanical in a 30 km/h wind, 1 kilowatt at 60 km/h, and can survive 100 km/h gusts. The full step by step build tutorial can be found here: http://opensourcelowtech.org/wind_turbine.html And the Facebook discussion group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/windturbinemakers/ My name is Daniel Connell. I prototype and develop basic technologies which anyone can make using recycled materials and simple tools. The aim is for everyone everywhere to be able to build and maintain their own infrastructure; producing their own energy, food, clean water, communications, and anything else they need. All designs are open source and license free for any purpose, and full construction tutorials and how-tos are available on the opensourcelowtech.org website. #wind #diy #energy #windturbine #renewableenergy #tutorial #windpower #opensource
