Main Question or Discussion Point
I recently inherited a cabin that is very close to an old mine. There is an air vent that is constantly (24 hrs) blowing a steady, high volume of air from a 3.5 ft hole. I would like to harness that air. I was thinking about taking a 3 ft diam PVC pipe and affixing it into the shaft, with 4 fans (ie car radiator) mounted in the pipe. I want to place the fans on the shaft of electric motors that would generate power. I am not educated in electric or mechanical engineering and would like someone to direct me to some resouces where I can learn the basics of how to accomplish this.
