  • Get hands-on experience and learn transferable skills in welding, wood carving, and working with magnets & resin
  • Learn how to build and install a Hugh Piggott wind turbine from scratch using basic materials
  • Experienced tutors who have been running courses building Piggott turbines since 2007
  • A practical fun course for all experience levels

On the course we collectively build a 1.8m diameter Hugh Piggott wind turbine. All the participants spend time working on each of the three main parts of the build (wood, metal, and electronics) rotating through the different bases on the first day. On the second day we then come together as a group to assemble the machine.

V3 Power is a workers cooperative based in Nottingham. The turbine is a robust design that can be easily repaired, maintained and serviced and is an excellent example of appropriate technology.

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.
