Just about every survivalist actively looks for alternatives to traditional energy wherever they come up.
That includes wind.
Almost all of us have seen the giant turbines on a ridgeline or in a wind farm, but the same technology on a smaller scale can be used to create power just about anywhere there is a reliable stiff breeze.
When you consider that just about every old farm had some sort of windmill, you get an idea of how easy it can be to harness the wind.
For most of us, though, purchasing a turbine, even at a moderate size is simply not an option price-wise, not to mention in terms of local ordinances about what you can and cannot have on your property without a permit.
One option that generally passes muster, though, is to build your own.
On the next page, we offer step-by-step instructions on how to get started building your own wind turbine.
