Apartment Wind Turbine ideas
Hey all. I would like to gather opinions on 2 small wind turbines I'm thinking of constructing. Difficulty: I live in a third floor apartment (it's also the top floor).
My first idea was to modify an old box fan and mount it outside my window.
Then I walked into my bathroom, which has a noisy exhaust fan in it. I accidentally turned it on and realized that I could build a collapsable darrieus turbine that would fit up the exhaust vent, expand when outside, and hook that up to the exhaust fan motor already in the vent. Does this sound feasable?
My goal is to see if I could charge a cell phone from the power generated by one of these two options.
apologies for the quick-n-dirty sketch below.
