This workshop, sponsored by the MREA, will install a 120' guyed tower and a 10 kW Bergey XL wind generator, with the help of a crane. The system will tie into the utility grid with a utility intertie inverter. Ê The workshop will focus on the components of a wind system, site analysis and site improvement, equipment options, system siting and sizing, and installation techniques. Ê This workshop has a limited enrollment. Because this is a hands-on workshop, students should be prepared to get dirty and dress for the weather. Gloves, boots, and work clothes are recommended.
For more information or questions on the wind turbine workshop, contact Clay Sterling at the Midwest Renewable Energy Association (MREA).
