The video and blog post was Part 3 of the Experimental Wind Turbine Tower Project. As seen in a previous video, the support tower was raised up into place. The 23-foot support tower would make the process of erecting the towers easier and safer. The plan was to come back, lower the tower for maintenance […]
Have not been to the cabin for a few weeks. There have been too many household projects that need to get done first. But, in between the daily chores, I’ve been messing around with gears made from plywood. Also wanted to incorporate more woodworking into the projects. The plan for this project was to mount […]
A video shot over the April 8th weekend. It’s about how to erect a support pole next to the existing big wind turbine tower. It’s one of the steps required to raise and lower the big wind turbine. The support pole was from a large 25-foot tall tree that was missing 90% of its bark.It […]
A video about raise up a super tall tree into the air with a bunch of pulleys and then see how it functions as a wind turbine tower. The goal of the project was to source materials for a 50-foot tower, in this case, a skinny, tall, dead tree. Then use a living tree as […]
A short video showing some of the basic steps required to hook up a small wind turbine to an off-grid battery bank.
Finally, I made some time to put up the small wind turbine tower. The deep cycle batteries in the main cabin needed to be charged. The snow covered solar panels were just not cutting it and not providing the necessary amps to charge the system. It was time to put up the small wind turbine […]
