Have you ever been somewhere that is really windy? There are places on the coast of this nation that have near constant wind. It howls day and night.
What you notice, quickly, this day and age is that the earth is putting out tremendous power and so few are capturing it. These beach towns have a lot of things but you hardly ever see wind turbines. Not on the micro or the macro scale.
There are other parts of the nation like this, too.
Have you ever considered harnessing the wind for your own power? Of course, you are going to need to either purchase or build a wind turbine to harness that energy. You are a prepper right? SO you should learn to build these things. If you can generate power in a collapse you will be a valuable player in the game.
Building a Chispito wind generator is not as hard as you think.
Understanding Alternate Energies
If we ever see a collapse of the traditional power grid, as the government has warned us, we will need people who know how to create alternate means of generating power. There is no reason why you shouldn’t be a person who understands that.
Projects like DIY solar panels or wind turbines are a great way to practice those skills and be ready to scavenge and create new power generation methods in the future. While this seems like something for an engineer to figure out, its simply another skill that improves with practice.
We cannot know what disaster will shut this great society down but we do know that skills are what will rule the new landscape.
Try new things, like this turbine build, while materials are cheap and failure is without consequence.
