In this project, you will see how to build a small DIY VAWT, Vertical Axis Wind Turbine. The project I am sharing wont get you much over 50 watts of production, though it would be fairly simple to double the size of the blade area to increase power.
Whats good about this design is it has a low noise level. It can not be heard from 20m away. The average noise is lower than 45dB (A) in 8m/s wind speed. It is very suitable for the roof top mount in school, supermarket, park and other urban area.
Now its winter and the sun is not going to be so reliable this is the best winter alternate energy source. Read the comments on the article as they always give extra tips and advice.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
