The course will cover site considerations, wind resource assessments and energy production estimates, tower and turbine considerations, equipment assembly, maintenance and more for wind turbines under 100 kilowatts.

The workshop is designed around a North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) small wind installer task analysis and will provide participants with fundamental knowledge of how to properly site, specify, permit, install and maintain a residential small wind turbine.
Participants will learn about: The fundamentals of wind, basic wind site assessment, zoning, permitting, net metering and utility interconnection, turbine selection, economics and design considerations, tower selection, estimating energy production, foundation and soil condition assessment, safety procedures, installation techniques, balance of system components, commissioning and interconnection, data collection and how to troubleshoot and maintain a system.

Butler is a nationally certified installer and trainer and a small wind workforce-training provider for community colleges, technical schools, renewable energy associations and various organizations around the country. An award winning instructor, he brings over 16 years of system integration and installation experience with grid-tied and off-grid wind systems. His home and business have been off-grid, powered by wind and solar photovoltaic energy since 1997.

The course, which is open to the public, will be offered March 19-21 at Great Falls College MSU. The course registration fee is $200 and registration by March 15 is required.
