Wind Turbines

The course can be arranged on request. Minimum 12 participants are required.

This training program has been developed from the methodology of Hugh Piggott, author of The Wind Turbine Recipe Book. During the one-week course, participants will learn to construct a simple, low-cost 600W wind turbine with a 2.4m-diameter rotor. The course will involve woodwork to hand grind the blades of the rotor, metalworking, and generator fabrication.


Some knowledge of electrical required.


Six day course; Classes from 8:30am to 5pm.
