Learning how to design and install your own wind turbine for your house, farm or ranch is a great and rewarding challenge. At $35 this course is an absolute deal, compared to all the time and money it will save you.

I like the teacher of this course, Ian, because he has been doing this for over 30 years and he literally wrote the book Wind Power for Dummies. You can't ask for a better wind professor than him!
