Preston, Co West Virginia's Newest Power Plant

This old farmstead never had utility power extended out to it.  It's still off-grid, but now it has power thanks to a Bergey wind turbine and solar PV modules mounted on a beautiful custom stainless steel tower that the homeowner built themselves.  The batteries and electronics are in the workshop to the right of the photo and they feed power down to the home (out of view).
