I’ve been discussing large scale wind turbine projects on this blog recently.  I ran across this meeting notice for small-scale wind turbines.  The High Plains Energy Team is hosting a free webinar on small-scale wind turbines.  Below are the details.

Program Summary:

This webcast gives an overview of small wind turbines. Topics to be covered include: applications, estimating wind turbine production, policies & economics, the process for installing small wind turbines, small wind system components, and technology questions. This presentation gives participants the tools needed to determine if a wind system is appropriate to a particular application and to avoid common pitfalls encountered in analyzing and executing small wind turbine projects.

Presenter:

Antonio C. Jimenez – National Renewable Energy Laboratory(NREL)/National Wind Technology Center. Mr. Jimenez is a member of the NREL Wind Powering America team.

Suggested web resources:

American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) Web Site:  www.awea.org
