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 Wind power, Bergey Wind power, Xzeres Wind as well as home built machines from Hugh Piggott and Other power plans.

Early Registration Cost: $400* (lunch included) *Cost after

Students in UNC System Early Registration Cost: $350** Student Cost after

Both days Continuing Education Credits Offered: 12 AIA LU, 12 PDH
All attendees will receive a Certificate of Completion

Special Note: We are excited to announce that this workshop is offered in partnership with the NC Clean Energy Technology Center and is a part of their Renewable Energy Technologies Diploma Series.
