Wind charger 3-5kw

Does anyone out there have plans for me to build a 3-5kw wind charger? Is a savonius as good as a blade version. I am very new at all of this

Welcome Derek. The design on the web may be able to generate that, I have not tested up to that power. You would need to use thicker winding wire than the 1mm I use.

You would need blades somewhere between 2 and 2.5 metres long for a standard blade design. For vertical axis Savonius, you would need (it is less efficient) somewhere around 18 square meters of swept area.
