Jamestown, NY – David Moller has been experimenting with alternative energy since his youth.

At the Audubon Community Nature Center workshop “What Can Wind and Solar Energy Do for You?” you can learn what he has discovered and how the sustainable energy sources of wind and solar can be applied to your lifestyle, home, small farm or small business.

The workshop will be 1-2:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 17, 2017.

Alternative energy has been a passion of David Moller for most of his life. He started experimenting with alternative energy 45 years ago in Boy Scouts, where he cooked food and heated water with the sun. He also learned the basics of creating electricity by spinning objects with the wind.

Moller built a wind a wind turbine blade carving machine in his metal shop in Jamestown, New York, 15 years ago and has since designed and fabricated numerous wind turbine systems. He started designing and installing solar power systems about 10 years ago. He is NABCEP (North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners) certified in solar systems and NYSERDA (New York State Energy Research and Development Authority) qualified.

Specific questions about your applications can be answered more accurately if you have your yearly electrical consumption in kilowatt-hours with you. You are encouraged to bring your most recent electric bill, which includes this information.

Fee for the workshop is $8, $6 for Nature Center members.
