One way to erect a wind turbine


Don’t try this at home, folks!

Ian Woofenden and Kelly Keilwitz assembling an ARE 442 turbine on a 120 foot free standing monopole tower. Some people have all the fun.

I live off-grid in NW Scotland and have spent my life playing with wind turbines. I also love small hydros. Hands on renewable energy is my thing and I like to learn and to share my experiences.

    Looks a treat.
    But boy do those poles take a pounding. My pole got bent by storm Cynthia here in Normandy,France. 3.6m turbine with only 10 meter tower, 100mm dia by 4mm wall tube bent out of true by 50mm just above the top guy wire securing points. I will have to do some support work, and rethink/redesign my No 2 before it goes up.
