People with water falling down their property have one of the most concentrated renewable energy resources available. Tapping small streams can give homeowners an ample supply of environmentally friendly electricity at a reasonable cost. We’ll study resource assessment, hydro-electric principles, system design, component specification, and installation details in the classroom, and put new skills and perspectives to work with labs/projects, and field visits to working systems, including a tour of turbine manufacturer Canyon Hydro . Join us for in-depth learning about the cream of the crop of renewable energy resources, and be ready to recognize a hydro-electric resource and put it to work. US$895 tuition
