Build Your Own Generator – What Skills Do You Need to Get the Job Done?
If you want to save money by building your own generator, then you really need to know what skills you are going to need to get the job done. There are a variety of different power-saving generator devices to choose from and each one requires a different level of DIY knowledge.
Here are the three most popular DIY generator projects
Wind Turbine Generator
You will not require any specific DIY knowledge with this project. Being able to hammer a nail into a piece of wood is a start and having a fundamental knowledge of wiring will help, but the DIY instruction manuals for wind turbine construction include all this information in step-by-step instructions. These projects are both easy to source and easy to complete and are a great project to include children in.
For a DIY solar panel project, you will need a little more experience as the project will include soldering as well as more complicated wiring. Solar panel construction includes easy woodworking with painting and soldering followed by moderate wiring. Again these projects are easy to source and complete and could be a slightly more advanced project to include the kids in.

A basic understanding of magnetic fields is also an advantage, but the full step-by-step instructions will be able to guide a DIY enthusiast through the procedures. The components are still relatively easy to locate and will result in a very innovative method of generating power for your home with a reasonable DIY experience.
Making free energy for your home may have a setup cost of between one and three hundred dollars depending on the device you decide to build, but the long-term benefits of clean, renewable, free energy are worth that initial investment.
