Hello Hugh  The Great,

Good Morning ? This is Samuel Agwotu With the Uganda Veterans Wind Power Initiative ,  it has been a while though,

Just to get you updated, UVWPI , with UMEC (UGANDA MILITARY ENGINEERING COLLEGE) brought brains all together  to build

7 meters rotor diameter wind turbine, the blades are wooden , power output is  averaging at  25kwh a day, this is great isn’t it ?

Developing Wind power here in East a frica is real challenge especially when the imported ,technology , wind turbines, have scared the population and Government  way from wind power technology, just because they weren’t designed for here.  but God willing , this wind power industry will limp and grow.

Thank you for your motivation , Skills, and Light, May the Almighty God bless you

Best regards


Managing Director

About hugh

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.

    Hi Hugh, I am not about to build a wind turbine but am interested in the subject. I am writing to tell you that I take my hat off to you for the complete and exhaustive depth of detail you reach in your description of how to build a wind turbine. Someone like you should be in a very well paid job spreading the light in dark corners where forgotten or exploited people are crying out for help to be able to help themselves. I think you are the sort of man who would not give a hungry person a fish but would give them a fishing rod. I bet that, on the one hand, you care deeply and on the other, you are so much into detail. When the two come together a man like you is born. Well done! Mark

  2. That’s probably the biggest homebuilt windturbine I’ve ever seen!!!
    You guys did a really nice job!! Keep on doing such good work!
