Windmill installation!

Due to today’s power outage on our block, a whole group of people (most of whose names I can’t remember, sorry) were catalyzed to install the Windmill and make an energy-independent hackerspace.

With naught but hand tools, the last legs of some battery-powered drills, and the occasional bit of sledge-hammering, we can now harness the energy of the atmosphere to power Noisebridge! (Sort of. When a stiff breeze is blowing, and with a bit of luck.)

Planning the installation…

Preparing for liftoff!

The blades were a bit too long, so we had a sawing party (and a bit of a rave…)

Many hands make lights work.

Almost there!

“OK… now switch on the wind!”
