Abstract: In this paper comparisons will be made between homemade and commercially produced windmill turbines. In order to make this comparison, a homemade windmill generator had to be built. There was a lot of trial and error and primary research that went into the construction of the windmill generator, but the main elements are as follows: Preparation of windmill blades, finding an appropriate generator, creating a hub and mounting it for the windmill generator. The secondary research consisted of finding a common commercially produced windmill generator, its ability to output voltage and its overall efficiency. Some other secondary research also includes gathering wind data from local meteorological sources within the Toronto area.
