Diy WindmillsFrom one DIY person to another, you can build your own windmill today. A do it yourself windmill project doesn’t need to be difficult. It’s all about taking the right steps to ensure proper setup and speedy completion.

Building your own windmill will allow you to use the Earth’s free wind power, which will give you lower power bills or none at all.

Here's a link to a guide for building windmills and saving 80% or more on your power bills--->DIY Windmill Guide

Knowing your energy consumption is the big first step. It’s a simple process though. Just look at your recent utility bills to find out. It should only take you a few minutes to find out. By knowing how much power you use, you’ll know how much power you need to produce. With your power consumption data in hand, you now know what type of windmill you’ll be building.

Time for an energy thought. Sit back and look at all the things sucking up energy in your life. There’s probably several ways to reduce energy use. One common thing is the empty room with the light on. Did you know that power strips that are left on use energy?

Next, you need to look at the wind situation in your location. How many days of the year have wind flow (any)? So, what’s the wind flow like? Maybe your city/town/etc experiences daily wind flow of 3-7mph.

Where will your windmill be located? Perhaps you can build a grand windmill or maybe you need to build a micro windmill.

Another decision is deciding on whether or not to buy a windmill kit or to buy a guide (yes) and then buy the kit or parts on their own. I’d recommend purchasing a how to build a windmill guide to make life easier. Otherwise, you’ll just be staring at windmill parts. Have fun building your homemade windmill.
