Came across two small turbines. Will contact the respective manufacturers for more details and what additional kit is required. Not cheap though:

Found out CAT in Wales does a domestic wind turbine day training. I'll let you know if it's interesting in a couple of weeks.

Look forward to hearing more.

Interesting place to visit and chat to people generally

@jeff, sounds amazing. It says all materials provided. Does that mean you’ll walk out of there with a turbine? That would be tremendous value. 😀

It is a two day residential group course where you get to make and build a turbine on site as a group including food and accommodation. 

Everyone on the course doesn't walk out with a turbine unless i missed something. 

Still good value to learn about these things.

Am sure you would pickup really practical real world info on domestic solutions in general.

@jeff, I was joking about walking out with a turbine. 😀

It does genuinely sound like a very interesting course. Hands on training like that is amazing.

Hadn't even seen that one! I found the one day course:-

Figured it'll be a good start to see what the training is like there.

Just seen a group in Bristol has privately financed a £4m turbine.
