Business Comments:

Small (domestic scale) wind and hydro system design, installation, repair, consultancy, training, authorship.

Experience with building wind turbines from scrap materials has lead to publication of various books including 'Windpower workshop', a guide to building your own wind turbine. I also self-publish wind generator plans, which are selling well. I also teach courses woldwide.

System installation is only a small part of what I do, so I am only a part time 'wrench'. I need to keep abreast of the trade because I talk about it a lot. Especially noisily on e-groups such as the a-w-h list and the microhydro list (now under yahoo control).

My peferred focus is the homebew arena because I enjoy giving people the powe to make their own electricity supply.
