The Appalachian State University's Small Wind Research and Demonstration Site will be the location 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; a variety of distributed wind energy technologies; and case studies of successful projects. Workshop attendees will engage in classroom and hands-on activities.
The 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 small-scale, distributed wind power technology. Continuing education credits are offered for architects and engineers.
