author and wind turbine designer


My name is Eric Moore, and the idea of power generation has always fascinated me.  I even went so far as to go into the Navy’s nuclear power program and worked on power generation for a nuclear submarine for about 5 years of my life.

I’ve always been a creative thinker, trying to invent the next best thing, and several years ago I had an idea for a cheap wind turbine generator that could be easily transported and set up.  If I could figure out how to make a homemade turbine, and it was cheap to make, I’d be on to something great I could share with others.  Imagine a cheap, diy turbine generator!  If it was portable, I could use it on my fishing shantee like a rooftop wind turbine, and I could take it with me on the frozen lake to collect wind energy coming across the lake, using it to power my electric heater.

I bought a car alternator to use as my turbine’s generator, converting the wind’s blade rotation into usable energy, but my logic was a little faulty.  I didn’t fully understand the concept of how an alternator works, so my whole design failed.  It kindof failed when it came to my DIY wind turbine blades, too.  They were very customizable, using PVC and plastic wrap to make them light, and the way they were set up let me change the angle of the blades for maximum efficiency, but in the end, I wish I had searched the web for some homemade wind generator plans! It turns out, there are actually some good ones out there, if you’re willing to pay a little for them.  For me, it was well worth the frustration to go ahead and buy the plans I ended up getting.  The turbine blade design part and how to make the turbine stand part was well worth it.

Knowing what I know now, if I had to do it all over again, I’d buy this course right from the beginning and save myself a lot of wasted time!  This is actually a course on solar energy, but it comes with an added bonus course on making your own homemade wind turbine, and it’s phenominal!  I bought this course and can’t believe what a time and money saver it is.  It walks you through step by step how to make a wind generator with cheap parts you can get just about anywhere, and it makes it easy to understand and follow, too.

I highly recommend this course.  I think you’ll not only save yourself a lot of frustration and wasted time with it, but you’ll get the most out of your generator.
