DIY Wind Turbine Works Great in Wind Storm
Three years have past, the PVC blades on the wind turbine are working just fine, and do well in high winds. A few hours after this video footage was taken, our the testing facility (the cabin) was hit with a massive wind storm. Lot’s of trees were knocked over and roots pulled from the earth. The wind turbine tower didn’t fall over and the turbine provided lot of power to batteries.Thanks for watching
