how can i make a working model to generate electricity from windmill or solar panel?

it's a PROJECT WORK. I HAVE TO MAKE ALL THIS AT HOME..

I can either make a windmill and generate electricity from it or use a solar panel to generate electricity..how can i do that?

Please give me some LINKS or advice...

Thnx for all ur answers in advance

    well it will be harder to make a solar panel as it rquires some skill...

    rather you can make a generator and this can be done at home very easily and with the use of waste materials kept in the junkyard....

    Search goole and youtube for it. If you don't find anything helping, then mail me or IM me i will help you building it from scratch...

    I am an Electrical Engineer and a Liberal. I would say for you that windmills are not easy to be a personal generating unit, because the place play major role due to wind speed, direction and strength through the year. Solar energy generates DC power and reverting it to an AC (Which is the input power type for most devices) is complex process. In short, windmills and solar have nothing to do with personal possession. They should be done in wide power farms designed to inject power in the grid. Stop misleading people.

    Keep it simple, is the best bet.

    A generator is just a motor in reverse. Get a hobby car motor, something that runs on 3 volts or so. Hook the blades of the windmill up to the motor shaft and spend the blades. The motor will output a AC voltage in proportion to the speed at which the windmill blades spin. Put the motor and windmill blades into some kind of appropriate housing (windmill style), and you have a project.

    Whole project could probably be put together for less than $20.00

    I made my own solar panels last year, so I don't know why a poster above says you can't...

    I used this guide: http://tinyurl.com/GreenEnergy2010

    It also comes with a guide about building a windmill. I didn't personally use that one, but I have a friend that did and I guess it was a little cheaper than what I spent on making the panels.

    This article also has some general tips, but it isn't really a "guide": http://ezinearticles.com/?How-to-Make-Solar-Panels...

    Good luck, I can probably give you advice if you need it.

    Solar panels can nort be made at home.You have to buy it and connect to your load may be a light.

    a small generator and wind turbine can be made from crude but you require skill and knowledge.

    Principle is a coil rotates in am magnetic field, current will be produced.

    You will need power full magnets or electromagnet, copper wires,support bearings etc.Then you have to make wind turbine.

    I think better use an old bicycle dynamo and connect it to your wind mill.

    If you build your own solar panels from scratch, you will not generate enough power for your home. But it can produce enough power for small appliances.

    If you want to power your home and large appliances, it's better to get the solar power kits. Check it out here.

    First i think you should start by doing a little background reading on electricity, current and charge. Read this article it's pretty awesome for what you are looking for this:
