Hi all and thanks for visiting. This blog is to show the world what myself and others involved in this project are up to.

But what is this project, you ask?

I recently decided to attempt to build a fully functional wind turbine out of commonly found, inexpensive materials. The reason for doing this is twofold:

1. To show the community around us that it is relatively simple and cheap to build something that can ultimately provide free energy.

2. Promote the building of these miniature wind turbines in underdeveloped countries to provide power for things such as hot plates and lights. Hot plates because everyone in the world needs to eat, and don't deserve to get lung cancer from the fires inside their huts. And lights because the a large social factor preventing people from advancing is the lack of education -> and lights at night allow people, specifically children, to do things as simple as their homework.

So this is just a start. We need help building. We need help educating. We need to figure out a more concrete community goal, and how to distribute the idea. If you want to get involved, we want you to get involved. Any help is good help, so please don't hesitate to contact!

The first night!

So 2 weeks ago Todd and Daniel dropped by and helped with beginning to carve the windmill blades.  Thanks to their prowess, we got the general outline of 3 blades cut out, and started carving the curved shape into one of the blades.  Great work guys!!!
