Teaching Malawian students how to build small scale wind turbines.
After successfully building a 240 mm diameter wind turbine in my back garden here in Malosa to see if it was possible to build a wind turbine Hugh Piggot style in Malawi, and after running this windmill for about 4 months to find out if it was worth the effort, I am ready for the next step:
Teaching Malawian students how to built and use small scale wind turbines.
This Month I started teaching at Mikolongwe DAPP Vocational School in Chiradzulu. We plan to construct a 300 mm diameter Hugh Piggot style wind turbine with 22 students from DAPP. The course will be given in the coming two months as a pilot project. After this period hopefully making wind turbines will be part of daily life at Mikolongwe.
