CCC Offers Home-Built Wind Turbine Seminar

 A one-week seminar at Clackamas Community College this June will provide instruction on building a wind turbine suitable for home use. The Home Built Wind Turbine seminar will take run from Monday, June 24, through Thursday, June 28, at CCC. It is presented by the Renewable Energy Technology program at the college.

“A 14-foot wind turbine can power up to 40 percent of the energy needs of a typical home,” said Jim Stager, instructor in CCC’s electronics program.

Students in the class will build a wind turbine from scratch. The hands-on seminar will cover construction of residential wind power generators using welding/cutting, drill press and wood-cutting hand tools.

Instruction will include discussions of windmill types and efficiencies, adequate vs. sophisticated designs, and directions for the project students will build in class.

The two-credit class costs $350. For more information, call 503-594-3318.
