Book Overview

The book is intended to give you all the essential information you need to build your own wind turbine and create an independent off grid system, using a simple and practical approach and open source solutions wherever possible.

  • 3 Wind Turbine sizes: 2F, 3F, 4F
  • Detailed instruction for the whole building process
  • Plans for building your tower to carry the wind turbine
  • Turbine maintenance tips
  • A system design part on how to combine your turbine with solar panels and battery storage to make the best use of your homemade electricity.

The Story 

This is a collaborative project between Jonathan from PureSelfMade and Hugh Piggott with the aim to collect the various new ferrite generator turbine concepts (F-Series) in a clean manual and make them available to the community of DIY practitioners. It will be a follow-up to the legendary “Wind Turbine Recipe Book” by Hugh, including the latest concepts, tricks and achievements in Piggott wind turbine manufacturing collected over the past years.

The crowdfunding campaign was born to support the project financially for the first round of printing by giving away copies as a pre-sale.
