The President of Ireland Michael D Higgins unveiled a plaque for the ‘Tree of Generations’ sculpture made by Lough Graney Youth Club. Our involvement was working with the Youth Club to explain how the small wind turbine works. First they wound the copper coils for the alternator, they painted the blades, then they designed and painted the beautiful Peppa Pig tail. The turbine is a Hugh Piggott design 1200mm and charges a small battery with the help of a little PV panel and a few LED lights are run off the system.
