A hands-on wind turbine building workshop with Hugh Piggott.
These courses have been held since 2001, with small groups around 5-8 people building a wind turbine over a period of six days and testing it. Activities include carving blades out of wood. winding and assembling alternators from scratch, arc welding the steel frame. No previous workshop experience is required. There is some informal discussion and explanation of the theory behind the design and wind energy for stand-alone situations. During the week we shall tour some of the many wind and solar systems on the Scoraig peninsula.
