Build a Bike Generator

Good basic introduction to the subject.

Buy permanent magnet motors and inverters so you'll have lots of spares. Bikes you can get almost anywhere. With a VAWT (Vertical Axis Wind Turbine) you get the wind to do the pushing for you, even when it is not blowing very hard.

In the parallel world of fallout 3, you'd be able to mail order a flat-pack vertical wind turbine which could be put together by a 12 year old with a screwdriver.
