Vertical Wind Turbines

Several times a year Perth has storms causing damage that State Emergency Services have to fix. Would these windmills be better?

One problem with three-bladed wind turbines is that they can catch fire in high winds because of the high-speed friction. Perth gets high winds several times a year – strong enough to blow trees down on top of houses.

I would like to get electricity from the wind even at low wind velocities. Most of the time we have feeble breezes.

Windmill blades are beyond my skill to carve. Could Savonius Vertical Axis Wind Turbines be a possible answer? They certainly seem to be much easier for a handyman to make. I’ll have to investigate further.I’ll probably never get around to doing it.
