    Got an interview for a new wind farm going in near my house to be a Windmill Tech.

    Any advice from you guys? Do you like it? hate it?

    Hard work? Pretty easy?

    Well, I'm not a tech but I am an electrician but around these parts if you refer to "windmills" as anything other than a wind turbine it is taken as an insult. Windmills are used for mills, turbines produce energy.

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    I am also interested in this field, any wind turbine technicians please respond to questions from post 1, thanks.

    Hey, i just finished a course in Canada for wind technicians at the Lethbridge College in Alberta. Have to say it was an great experience and would recommend it to anyone. Im also an electrician, which would be an asset to have or any other hydraulic / mechanical back ground work. I have yet to find work in the industry but have may leads opening doors, should be climbing 240 ft soon enough.
