The idea of generating electricity using rooftop mounted wind turbine has raise over the last decade. It is due to rising energy costs and the global need to reduce the use of carbon and greenhouse emissions. The rooftop mounted wind turbine has the potential to replace the source of generating the electric power. This research paper presents about the modeling, analysis and study of the blade design that affect performance of transverse axis wind turbine mounted on a rooftop. It consists of background of study of the project, problem statement, objectives, scope of study, literature review for the relevance, methodology and final result, conclusion and recommendations to improvise the experiment. In this project, the author design and fabricate the transverse axis wind turbine based on relevant parameters and determine which turbine offer the best in term of speed that can be generated from the wind. At the end of this research, several recommendations have been made to improve the project that had been done
