Permanent Magnet DC motors can be used to create electricity using wind power. I connected a volt meter to it and spun it by hand, easily got 9VDC. It has been thoroughly tested and can also be used as a variable speed motor if you attach a motor controller.
Here is an interesting video about building a wind generator from this kind of motor. And here is the link to the PDF file that has step by step instructions you can print out.
