Alternative energy source

This little home-built wind turbine produces about 1.5 kW when a 16 mph breeze blows. The website includes step-by-step instructions on how to manufacture and install your own wind-powered generator, with tips found here and turbine selection criteria found here.

Oh, and make yourself a nifty, low-power solar generator yourself to power some small things around the house. Could be useful if you lose power during a storm, or if you're simply going to be off-grid for a while.
