In the current situation of extreme energy crisis across the globe when non-renewable fuel like petrol, diesel, kerosene prices are rising, it only makes sense that we look for alternate power solutions.
So What are the prerequisites for setting up a windmill? There are two prerequisites or necessary things you need to consider before building a wind energy generator at home. These are wind speed and area. Its best to build a windmill in an open area. A windmill works great in the backyard or rooftop of your home. Nearly everyone has seen a working one at least once in his life.
Calculate KWh Generated By Wind Turbine
Calculation Of Wind Power
1) The power output of a wind generator is proportional to the area swept by the rotor - i.e. double the swept area and the power output will also double.
2) The power output of a wind generator is proportional to the cube of the wind speed - i.e. double the wind speed and the power output will increase by a factor of eight (2 x 2 x 2)!
If you are not mathematically minded you can quit now, however it is well worth trying to understand what is going on here.

You will need the following components to make a windmill:
• Blades: These blades are responsible for making use of the wind energy. Blades are typically made of wood or plastic.
• Tower: The tower is the pillar that holds the system high enough to be able to use the wind. They are made up of hard material such as poly-vinyl chloride.
• Shaft: The shaft is used to join the blades to the tower, at the same time allowing them to rotate smoothly.
• Base: The base of the windmill is what holds the tower and the blades.
How to build a windmill yourself at home?
There are many good detailed guides and kits available which contain all the instructions from start to stop about making a windmill at home yourself.
You will find ready-to-install windmill kits in the market. Consult an expert to choose the one that best suits your place and needs. If you would like to choose the components personally and set the windmill on your own, make sure you seek professional help; a mismatch of size in the components will make your windmill useless.
