Wind Power Generation on YouTube

  • Kris Harbour Natural Building - an engineer who lives in Wales, in the UK. Kris substantially lives off the land, utilizing wind, hydro and solar power to remain off-the-grid. If you do not think that you can have a full machine shop while living off-the-grid, then you owe it to yourself to check out Kris's YouTube channel. When I first found his YouTube Channel, I went into binge-watching mode.

    One of his most recent videos is his build of a 2KW Axial flux wind turbine. Enjoy that link!

Wind Turbines: the Bigger, the Better | Department of Energy
The hub height for utility-scale land-based wind turbines has increased 66% since 1998–1999, to about 94 meters (308 feet) in 2021. That’s about as tall as the Statue of Liberty! The average hub height for offshore turbines in the United States is projected to grow even taller—from 100 meters (330 feet) in 2016 to about 150 meters (500 feet), or about the height of the Washington Monument, in 2035.

Wind farms are usually located on top of a mountain or in an otherwise windy place in order to take advantage of natural winds. The largest offshore wind farm in the world is called the Walney Extension. This wind farm is located in the Irish Sea approximately 19 kilometers (11 miles) west of the northwest coast of England.
