ABSTRACT
The article reports on the wind system-installation workshop on Apple Pond Farm. The farm, which is in the Catskill Mountains of Upstate New York, is home to Dick Riseling and Sonja Hedlund. The workshop they conducted was attended by 13 people, who are mostly from small wind and photovoltaics installation business. The workshop participants are seeking field experience in the installation of a larger wind turbine as a requirement by the New York State Energy and Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).
