Imbolg 2011, looking down on the farm at Druidschool
The following images were taken by me, Con from the top of a teleporter ... I was up high fitting a lifting strap to the wind turbine tower prior to lowering it. One of the blades is visible below. We had a fire in the switch gear shed last August 2010 and only now are we able to get at repairing our off grid electricity set up. A new shed, batteries, standby diesel generator and all the inverter switch gear including charge controller are all in process getting ready for installation. Insurance company payouts have weird conditions attached - but we will soon be independent ie off grid for sustainable electricity generation by wind. Next year we intend to add 1kw of PV that is to say we will add a big solar panel to our system.

I took the opportunity to take these photo's when I was up high above ground. Knees wobble... I got the video button all wrong, got some good stills out of 20 shots but I did not fall. Up again next time to undo the lifting strap... I'll try to get a bit of video footage of the 16 acre / 6 hectare farm we live on. Anyway enjoy the images.
