My VAWT, Vertical Axis Turbine Setup Empty My VAWT (Vertical Axis Wind Turbine) setup

Sat Apr 29, 2023 4:00 pm
I recently set up a Vertical Axis Wind Turbine, it was more of just a project, I went with vertical because I thought it looked cool and I read it was more efficient in residential area's.
Its been up for a month or so and I have yet to see any real power out of it, it does work and it does generate, but I am beginning to think it needs tornado force winds to really work. Very Happy

I think it also could be higher, but that would be a lot of work I am not ready to commit to yet. Maybe one day put it up on the roof and strap it to the chimney. That might help.

Here are some pics of my little setup
