View Full Version : Wind power?
July 24th, 2005, 05:19 PM
Saw the solar power thread, didn't want to change the topic...
I too want a windmill. How do you go about that?

I will bribe Rey into driving earlier so we can get to the fabricator during open eyes time.
You are just a text away.
But where will you install it? wehhehe SLEX wind?
Juan Sabungero, you will be included too.

I must have seen hundreds of windmills both old and new, during my travels here in the BENELUX (Belgium,Netherlands, Luxemburg) area. I think this technology will very much benefit our country.
fuel = darn expensive
wind = free
ones doesn't have to be a rocket scientist to figure which is better.
WHEN I EXAMINE MYSELF AND MY METHOD OF THOUGHTS,I COME TO CONCLUSION THAT THE GIFTS OF FANTASY MEANT MORE TO ME THAN MY TALENT FOR ABSORBING POSITIVE KNOWLEDGE - AE

There seems to be a lot of wind down here.
Not SLEX :) I want a "home use" one. Is that possible? Like a mini for 1 household?
Meralco is just exhorbitant! And they have such poor service. I wouldn't mind not being reliant on them anymore...like, forever!
Yeah, it's a no brainer... But of course, "the powers that be" don't like that, eh? ;)
Less for them... More benefits for us...
"They" hate it! ;)
But they run for elections to "help" us "daw." It's a comedy.
I want my windmill too!

can also turn this into business much
better than solar power
wind power for farm operations

Windmills: One of the great idea, that Phils dont do. We have Hydro plant either, that Phils doesnt use. Both this method, are free and ozone free:D

wow i am glad that a lot of you guys are into alternative sources of power. this is very vital for the nation. go to www.ge.com they seemed to have cornered or researched a lot of different application.
now the only thing that is a real bummer for these dreams are capital, hard capital. i dont think the folks in meralco will be happy with this either.
i think the philippines government should really make the bataan nuclear power plant operational, if the power can be harnessed it can supply power from appari to sulu multi times over. i think the government should really hire foreign experts from Japan, China and the US to run and train local engineers. we owe it to ourselves, the philippines is still paying for this white useless elephant.

$500? That's cheap.
Any local distributor/service?

In the solar thread, jocsena posted a site for solar and wind modules.
Interesting if you want the wind alternative power.
I will check out the big windmill fabricator because I also want the LOOK that the old huge windmills bring.

roundhead, i 1st came to work in the philippines in the westinghouse nuc plant in morong, really not feasible now to start plant, the time was when it was complete 20 yrs ago, now to late! i'm afraid filipinos will keep paying for the white elephant (converting more costly than starting from scratch!), solar or windpower if the indivual can afford it is the way to go.
everyone thanks for the info jim

FYI, a 25MW Windpower plant is already operating in Bangui Bay, Ilocos Norte. This first of its kind in South East Asia. The operators are Northwind Power Development Corporation and Ilocos Norte Electric Cooperative.
I gather fuel (wind) is free, but it is a very capital intensive project.

is the site of these wind generated electricity..

The one that is used for deepwells, and looks like the olden times windmills, cost about PHP120k
