Renewable Energy for Everyone

wind power reality -- an introduction to small wind

While solar energy is widely understood at the most basic level by the general public, wind energy at the small, home scale is far more complicated and is generally misunderstood by both the public and the news media. This course is a simple, back to basics introduction to the realities of small wind power compared to solar, for the homeowner or PV installer who has never dealt with wind systems before. It is also well-suited to the general public, and government administrators who are crafting local codes.
