    Dear Hugh,

    My name is Ionuţ and currently I am working for a company based in Edinburgh that mainly installs and fixes wind turbines.

    The reason I am contacting you is to ask about the training you run for wind turbine home build.
    I am volunteering for an association called ProVita -ONG/charity (not for profit) that is based in Romania, near Valenii De Munte place called Valea Screzii. The place is runned by a Romanian Priest called Parintele (father) Tanase and other volunteers. The place hosts a number of single mother’s with children and children of all ages.

    There also a number teenager’s and a few smart kids around them. I have volunteered for few day this January and planing to go back in the summer after scool finishes for 5week’s if my boss will approves.

    Can you send me more information on the fees, other costs, your availability, tools and miscellaneous and if you are willing to run a course in this part of the world.

    I look foreword for your email.

    Kindest Regards,
    Ionuţ

      hi Ionut,

      Unfortunately I have stopped traveling around teaching courses for both personal and environmental reasons so I cannot help you but if you look a the list and contact some of the above you will find people who may be happy to come and teach.

      I do recommend you take care to make sure that you understand the constraints of small wind technology. You will need a good site with plenty of wind and you need to understand that there are other much easier ways to produce power, but this is an interesting challenge that may engage your kids and help them unfold their full potential. Sorry if you already know that small wind turbines need wind, and that they do often seem to be problematic, but a lot of folk assume this is not so.

      all the best and have fun
      Hugh

    Hi Hugh,

    I am running a wind turbine workshop from the 12 to 17th of May 2015 in Poland. Paddy Atkinson from Findhorn is running the course. Can I put the workshop details on your website? And if yes how do I do this?
    Cheers
    Karl
