Summer has started early this year. But today I found some fresh air passing by my window.
I couldn't ignore it. So I decided to make this easy wind turbine for my kids to play with me.
In this intractable I’ll show you how I celebrated earth day by making this easy small wind turbine.
Nearly all components come from recycled stuff.
The only new component is the Generator. I bought last year and made many projects with it.
This is my newest project.
I hope you like it.

Step 1: Components and Tools
2 large PET Bottles
LED for Test
Old steel groom --- This is the main pole for the wind turbine
Old CD-Rom player metal cover --- This is the directing rudder. For wind turbine automatic direction through all wind situations.
Step 2: Cut the Blades
I started by these two large PET bottles to make the blades.
First, start by drawing the shape of the blade on the PET bottle.
Then using scissors cut the PET bottle to the shape.
Now you have two identical blades.
Make sure to have the bottle neck untouched. This will act as a hub for the blades.
Step 3: Connect the Two Blades Together
Using heat connect the two blades form their both necks.
This connection point will act as the hub on which you'll connect the generator.
Now you have a pair of connected blades.
Step 4: Install the Generator
Step 5: Roll the Fan
