Guemes Island, WA
Wind-electric systems require the most maintenance and have the most problems of any renewable electricity system. This workshop will include a brief review of basic wind-electric system design principles and practice, and then focus on maintenance, troubleshooting, and repair of these systems.
This is an advanced workshop, intended for experienced wind-electric system users, designers, and installers, or for those who have attended SEI's introductory wind workshop.
Classroom sessions will complement extensive hands-on work. Workshop participants will work on real-world wind-electric systems, including tilting down a tower, climbing and working on freestanding and guyed towers, and working on wind turbines and balance of systems components. At least half of this workshop will be hands-on work.
