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