What is a 'Wind turbine'?

A Wind turbine is a machine that is driven by the force of the wind to generate electricity. Natural wind turns a fan which then turns the mechanism in a generator to generate electricity.

You can ...

Build your own wind turbine or purchase one! Small wind turbines can be used to recharge batteries, larger ones can be used to source your domestic electricity and your surplus electricity can be sold!
