Chevron Training, the industry leading Renewable Energy Training provider is proud to be the 1st QQI approved training provider to deliver the new Small Scale Wind System Implementation training course.

This comprehensive hands on Wind Energy and Wind Turbine Installer training course will equip students with the necessary skills required to carry out installation of all Wind Turbine type windmills.

25/3/09 Energy Minister Eamon Ryan today announced measures to encourage the on-site generation of electricity in homes and farms across Ireland.

Among the measures is a guaranteed price of 19 cent per kilowatt hour of electricity produced. This competitive feed-in tariff will apply to the first 4,000 micro-generation installations countrywide over the next three years. Eligible installations include small scale wind, photovoltaic, hydro and combined heat and power.

All our farms and houses can be micro-generators. We can use our abundant natural resources to bolster the economy, create green-collar jobs and reduce carbon emissions at the same time. Every year, we send €6 billion out of this country on fossil fuels. This type of generation will help reduce this dependence and this outflow of money. We do not want to be dependent on Russia or Saudi Arabia for our energy needs; we can supply our own.”
