You are invited to Appalachian State University's Small Wind Research and Demonstration Site for a 2-day, hands-on workshop on small-scale, distributed wind energy. Participants will learn about the typical costs, economics, and maintenance involved with a distributed wind energy project, learn about a variety of distributed wind energy technologies, and successful case studies. Workshop attendees can expect both classroom and hands-on activities.

The Small Wind Research facility is home to a Class 5 wind resource with an annual average wind speed of 16 mph at 100 feet above the ground. The site provides attendees with first-hand experience with wind power technology. Approximately seven wind turbines are hosted at the site, from manufacturers such as Pika Energy, Primus Windpower, Bergey Windpower, Xzeres Wind, as well as homebuilt machines from Hugh Piggott and Otherpower plans.

Continuing Education Credits are offered for architects and engineers. Learn more and register.
