Homemade DIY PVC Wind Turbine Generator Running

Here you see a Wind Turbine Generator, with blades made using PVC pipe which powering a small DC generator.

In order to build your own wind turbine,

1)Take a PVC pipe, 5inch diameter and 2-3feet length.

6)Now you get four blades
7)Keep three blades and make drills for bolts in the bigger corner
8)Use a round steel plate or wood to mount the blades separated 120 degrees
9)Connect a shaft through the cente of the round plate and mount in a hub with bearings
10)Fix the entire set-up over a base and attach a vertical supporting pipe
