Windmills used to drive generators, 1920s
Windmills with modified airplane propellers marketed by Parris-Dunn and Jacobs Wind are used to drive 1- to 3- kilowatt DC generators on farms in the U.S. Plains states. At first these provide power for electric lights and power to charge batteries for crystal radio sets, bug later they supply electricity for motor-driven washing machines, refrigerators, freezers and power tools.
