Picture diary from Leucate France

Lots of nice photos from the Leucate course in the south of France on a clifftop in an abandoned communications base near a lighthouse.
There is a page dedicated to the small 1200 diameter turbine (watch out it rotates to the left or counter-clockwise as it is known in the USA)

Also some details of an interesting wire tensioner invented by Eddy of Tripalium. We managed to get all the coils identical and the right size to fit exactly in the stator. (This also involved some experimenting with different thickness shims.)

I am working on some video footage. I also taught a second course in Normandy, also with Tripalium, straight after, so I am a bit overloaded with material right now. And trying to get home but have to go to a conference in Glasgow instead.

too much 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.
