This entire alternative energy project costs less than $200 to build. And, yes, those are snow shovels that you see in the photo. Once built, the windmill will need to be connected to some kind of appropriate alternator and then can generate 300 watts of power.

Parts List Below:
27″ Snow Shovels
4″ Round Weatherproof Box
4″ Round Weatherproof Cover
Galvanized Pipe Nipple, 3/4-Inch X 12-Inch
EMT Snap N Set Screw Connector, 3/4″
J-B Weld
Self-Drilling Screws
Pillow Block Bearings
You will also need a stick of 3/4″ EMT electrical conduit.

This is the easiest homemade windmill you will find!

NOTE: Just weld a nut on the bottom of your 3/4″ EMT conduit and screw this baby on… simple connect.

That’s it! Go Green!

CORRECTION! In the video we said 3000w generator… We meant to say 300w… sorry about that. (senior moment) Also, the total cost was a little under $200.
