    What I have found, are ways that you can make a wind turbine out of a car alternator. Interesting enough people have really tried it and have used them in there homes.

    Here are SOME large ideas of things to keep in mind when thinking of building a wind turbine. This is not a conclusive list.
    -Know how much wind you have available, amount of energy = to a cube of wind speed.
    -the energy you get our of it is proportional to the area that captures the energy. (like a wind prop blade length and width.)
    -How large of an alternator or generator you have or plan on using.

    There are several schematics listed in the first link that offer many details. Good luck and happy planning!
