Please join us at Appalachian State’s Small Wind Research and Demonstration Site, located on Beech Mountain, for this two-day, hands-on workshop on small-scale, distributed wind energy. Participants will learn about the typical costs, economics and maintenance involved with a distributed wind energy project, learn about a variety of distributed wind energy technologies, and successful case studies. There will be both classroom and "hands-on" activities for workshop attendees.
The Small Wind Research facility is home to a class 5 wind resource with an annual average wind speed of 16 mph at 100 feet above the ground. The site provides attendees with first-hand experience with wind power technology. We typically host about 7 wind turbines at the site from manufacturers such as Pika Energy, Primus Windpower, Bergey Windpower, Xzeres Wind as well as homebuilt machines from Hugh Piggott and Otherpower plans.
