Hi Everyone,

With growing interest in renewable energy and the shortage of high-quality of hands-on training and workshops, I thought many of you might like to know about some upcoming workshops at my educational center in east-central Missouri,

June 23 — Intro to Small Wind Systems  — learn the basics of small wind energy systems. This is a great Introduction! You'll learn a ton in this one-day class.

June 26 to 30 — Wind Turbine Installation  — Learn how to install a downwind wind turbine on a 120-foot tilt up tower. It's difficult to find hands-on experience you'll receive in this workshop!

July 23 Home Energy Efficiency (Free!) — Great for aspiring professionals and homeowners who want to slash their energy bills and create more comfortable homes.

July 24 — Intro to Small Wind Systems — Required for our next class, starting on the 25th!

July 25 — July 30  Homebrew Wind Turbine Design and Construction — Learn how to build your own high-quality wind turbine for under $1,000! 

July 31 — Intro to Solar Electricity — A great intro to solar electricity for homeowners and aspiring professionals. This class will be taught in St. Louis, Missouri, not at our center in Gerald.

July 14 & 15 — Intermediate Solar Electricity — A much more detailed look at PVs, great for anyone wishing to learn more about PVs. This workshop is also offered in St. Louis.
