Award-winning renewable energy authors and educators Dan Bartmann and Dan Fink of Otherpower.com and Buckville Energy will be teaching a series of two classes on small wind power for home and business owners in Brownstown, Indiana from April 13 through April 15, 2012.

The first class, "Wind Power Reality - An Introduction to Small Wind" on April 13, 2012, covers the basics and the economics of owning a wind turbine for anyone interested in powering a home, business or vacation retreat.

The class "Wind Turbine Towers and Installation" on April 14 -15, 2012, is two days of hands-on and hands-dirty wind power "boot camp" for anyone serious about producing their own energy from the wind, and for renewable energy professionals who are considering expanding their existing solar business into small wind.

"Wind is the least understood and most difficult renewable resource to harvest," according to Dan Fink, Executive Director of Buckville Energy. "It pays to learn the basics before making any kind of investment in a small wind turbine. This short series of classes in Brownstown will provide home and business owners with the knowledge they need to make wise decisions about investing in renewable energy."

Both classes are accredited by the Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC) and the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) for required continuing education credit hours to maintain professional certifications.

Instructors Dan Bartmann and Dan Fink have been teaching wind power classes since 2004, and are co-authors of the award-winning book "Homebrew Wind Power." They are frequent contributing authors for Home Power Magazine, Solar Professional, Back Home Magazine, the Journal of Green Building, and more.
