Chinese farmer builds wind powered vehicle with 90mph speed
A Chinese farmer has built a wind powered vehicle that he says can travel at 90mph.
It looks little like a conventional car with a large fan in front and wings at the rear. What is really amazing is that the creator built the car from scratch with little outside help.Tang Zhengping is the name of the creator.
He loved electronics since he was a child and used his expertise to create this eco friendly car.The vehicle measures 3 meters in length and 1 meter in height, its colour is blue and its maximum speeds is about 90mph.
It took 3 months for Tang Zhengping to built this car. It isn’t just the wind that propels the car, but also solar energy was used for wings at the rear to support electricity generation. He used two electric generators that enables it to travel at high speeds.
The spinning fans help recharge the two batteries.Countries like China are at the forefront of wind energy.
Five years ago, China had no infrastructure for wind energy, but it’s now leading the world at this segment.
