Solar Energy International: Homebuilt Wind Generators Workshop
October 15, 2012 - October 22, 2012$995
October 15 – 22, 2012 – Guemes Island, WA USA
Study with the world’s leading guru on homebuilding wind turbines, Hugh Piggott of . Hugh only comes to the States every few years, and brings an expertise, generosity, and collaborative spirit that makes for one of our most creative and exciting workshops. Assisted by a fantastic volunteer crew, we’ll build 2-4 wind turbines from scratch – carving blades, winding copper coils, casting resin, welding and fabricating steel, and assembling functional machines. At the same time, we’ll learn about wind generator design theory and practice. Most of this workshop is hands-on work, and the participants and staff bring a wide variety of skills and experiences to the table. You’ll be hard pressed to find a more fascinating and practical workshop experience, and all this in a beautiful island setting in the Pacific Northwest! US$995 tuition
