Our wind turbine is up, but not yet turning

Our 11kW Gaia wind turbine was craned into place yesterday. It should make us entirely self sufficient in clean, green, local energy. We’ve been lucky with the weather, the dry spring kept the ground solid so the crane had no trouble getting into the field.

Here’s Ian helping local contractor Andrew Tucker get the blades off Andrew’s special front- and rear-steering trailer.

And the turbine being put together in the field.

And the tower finally being craned into position.
The turbine is┬ánot turning yet – we’re still waiting on a new meter from Good Energy, electricity supplier.
