Wind Energy for the Rest of Us: A Comprehensive Guide to Wind Power and How to Use
Wind Energy for the Rest of Us straddles two―or more―worlds. The book is about wind energy. It’s not just about small wind turbines. It’s not just about large wind turbines. It’s about the depth and breadth of wind energy, encompassing more than either type of wind turbine. It includes water-pumping windmills and sailing ships. It’s a sprawling book, one minute discussing how to install small wind turbines safely, the next explaining how farmers in Indiana can earn millions by installing their own multimegawatt wind turbines. If it’s a book hard to categorize, that suits its author, Paul Gipe, who likes to think he’s hard to categorize after four decades at the frontiers of renewable energy. His book tells the story of modern wind energy in all its complexity and introduces a North American audience to the trailblazing electricity rebels who have launched a renewable energy revolution in Europe. The book debunks novel wind turbines their promoters claim will generate electricity “too cheap to meter,” and rebukes revisionist historians who falsely argue that it was the aerospace industry that delivered today’s modern wind turbines. Gipe explains why new wind turbines are part of a silent revolution that is changing the way we use wind energy. This revolution ...

Backyard Wind Turbines: Harness wind power with simple and fun
Have you ever wanted to make something that could harness this abundant resource? Here is how to simply make fun projects that can both be useful and educational. With simple ideas and simple materials we can make easy to make projects. I came across the idea of harnessing the power of the wind just when I found the book of ”The boy who harnessed the wind".Although I didn't have any problems and didn't face any challenges concerning the electric power except some power outage in the summer time. But reading that book has really inspired me.Today I am putting my book in your hands to share with you my experiments.I hope you like it.

A Wind Turbine Recipe Book
A very practical, hands-on guide to building your own wind turbine, complete with drawings and detailed specifications of all the materials and processes. Six different sizes of turbines are covered, and also three different battery voltages for each and some guidance for those who wish to connected directly the mains grid. This publication is the fruit of ten years spent teaching practical courses during which wind turbines are built and tested. Hugh Piggott has spent thirty years off grid an uses wind energy for his own power. He has designed several turbines for manufacture in developing world situations and written a very popular book 'Windpower Workshop' about the theory of wind turbine design and installation. Numerous groups worldwide have started to build wind turbines according to Hugh's recipes and to teach similar courses so as to help others to build their own turbines.
