This course is designed for the home or business owners interested in installing a Renewable Energy system to either save on their utility bills, lower their carbon foot or hedge themselves against rising energy costs. The course will detail all of the different types of renewable energy (RE) resources available in upstate New York. Several of the RE types to be discussed will be solar photovoltaic, solar thermal, wind, geothermal and biomass. By the end of the course, the student will understand how each system works, their pros and cons, be able to access the viability for RE at his/her property and understand how all the state incentives and tax credits help pay for these systems.
