Chispito Wind Generator

We have designed a small wind generator capable of 100 watts in a 30mph wind. It is not a machine that is designed to power your house, although that is possible. Instead, it is designed to get your feet wet with the complexities and systems involved with wind power. Its not as complicated as some folks will have you believe, and the Chispito Wind Generator will help prove that point.

Electricity, especially when spinning blades are also involved, can be extremely dangerous. Bare in mind all safety warnings that you come across, even if they sound ridiculous.

The Chispito Wind Generator was designed to be simple and efficient with fast and easy construction.  There are no limits to what you can do with wind power.

Instructions on how to build a tower for your Chispito Wind Generator.

We've had a ton of questions since the release of Chispito. This page covers most of those questions, but if you can't find your answers here, contact us.

Parts can be hard to find at times. If you have something that might work, test it out. If it does work, let us know, so that we can tell others about it.
