I am in the process of helping a family in Berkeley, CA, USA decommission their small wind turbine generator (WTG). Just yesterday, I was able to obtain an affirming newspaper article that this WTG was indeed the first small WTG installed in Berkeley.

As I continue to perform research and due diligence, my hope is I will reveal that this is the first WTG of it’s kind installed not only in Berkeley, or the East Bay of San Francisco, but in a California municipality.

In the coming weeks, I will post updates here, and eventually summarize all my findings in a historical report. It’s an honor and privilege that Paul Gipe thinks this is a worthwhile endeavor. And yes, I will be forwarding my final historical report to Paul Gipe for him to share on his web site, as well.
