This kit is a great introduction to wind turbine technology and green energy. Once assembled it will generate alternating current (AC) via magnetic induction. Easy to assemble, vertical turbine can be spun by hand, a fan, hair dryer or ideally – outside in the wind. Blades capture wind from all directions.
Includes an alternator to produce AC power. An LED light indicator shows that AC power is being produced. Rare earth magnets are included but you can supply other types of magnets to see how they effect the energy being produced.
