Can I make a wind powered resistive water heater with an old AC motor?
I've got a bunch of old ac motors and a cold pool. If I made wind generators out of them to power an old water heater, I could heat my pool. I'm making the blades for the wind generator now, but I'm worried something might blow, but I don't see what would.I know the frequency and voltages would be wrong, but does that really matter? As long as I don't over amp it, wouldn't it be fine? I figure some one else must have thought about this, so I'm asking!
