Wind Chute Power Turbine
Sorry, but I don't have the exact specs and dimensions on this project, but it is here for you to dwell on.

The next thing you need is an Alternator. You need the 65 amp GM alternator with a built in voltage regulator. It is critical that you only use an alternator that has a built in voltage regulator! If you make a mistake in the selection of the alternator you run a very high risk of damaging the battery by over charging.
Note:Your alternator must be a GM alternator with a built in voltage regulator!
If an alternator that has a built in voltage regulator is used (and properly connected), the output voltage will increase until it reaches about 14 volts. That’s it. No matter how fast it is rotated, the output will never go above that value. This is the ideal charging voltage for a lead acid battery (a standard car battery). If you select this alternator, then there are 4 connections that must be made.

GND: This is the negative terminal. Connects to the "NEG" terminal on the battery.
F: This terminal is the voltage sense line for the alternator. Connect this directly to either the "POS" terminal on the battery, or the "BAT" terminal on the alternator.
R: This terminal is the power for the internal regulator circuit. This line must be connected through a switch to either the "BAT" terminal on the alternator, or the "POS" terminal on the battery. This terminal will draw power from the battery any time the switch is on, so YOU MUST switch it off when the generator is not in use, or your battery will be discharged over time through this terminal.
you turn off the switch that goes to the "R" terminal. The alternator will
"free wheel" with no load on the turbine. If the switch is on, the alternator
will try to output voltage if there is a wind.
