VAWT this project is an addition to my solar energy system, which i made few months ago. this is my first attempt on wind turbines. for my next wind energy project, i am planing to make a highly efficient axial generator with neodymium magnets. so stay tuned for that. in the future i might do more projects on different renewable energy. few months ago i have made a solar system for my house outside lighting here is that video. https://youtu.be/Cm1mTnC-ZLY ———————————————————————————————- music used 2BAD – Space Cake [FSTU Release] Support 2BAD: https://soundcloud.com/2bad-official https://www.facebook.com/2BaDOfficial/ ———————————————————————————————- Support on my patreon page https://www.patreon.com/makerman [More]
