Homemade 600 Watt generator made from an old washing machine! now if you’re going to live off the grid and generate your own power you have to choose how you’re going to provide that power in the most efficient and cost effective way possible. Everything you do must of course be sustainable and allow you to be 100% self reliant and independent. There are many ways to get the job done when considering how you’re going to generate electricity for your homestead. Most likely you’ll have solar panels and probably a wind turbine for a back up or supplemental power. You’ll also probably have a battery bank, and maybe even a back-up battery bank to supply power in the event your main battery bank goes offline for any reason.
Point being you’re going to need a back up eventually, and that is all about being prepared. Being prepared also means you need to have multiple redundent systems in place to supply your electricity in the event one or more of your power generating systems is fried by lighting, a tree falling on your solar panels, a storm knocking out your wind turbine, or an asteroid smashing your battery bank shed. (Hey, it could happen.)
So, it makes sense to have the option to power your homestead with multiple generators. This is how you convert an old washing machine into a generator.
Here’s how to to convert the washing machine into a generator.
Here’s a detailed video on how to rewire the stator.
WARNING: DO NOT ATTEMPT IF YOU ARE UNFAMILIAR WITH ELECTRICITY!
As with all things safety is paramount, and if you choose to do make one of these make sure you know what you are doing or get an electrician to rewire it for you.
This machine has the potential to power multiple appliances in your home, and best of all it’s powered by water.
