Wind Turbine Installer

Electricians wishing to install these systems need to be MCS certified or work for a certified company as a sub-contractor. The work involves installing meters, converters, assembling mountings and turbine blades, testing and commissioning of the turbine. Installers may also do wind surveys, advise clients on planning considerations, purchase equipment, calculate sighting locations, and manage earth work activity.
