As the adverse impacts and rising costs of fossil fuel use become increasingly apparent, residential-scale renewable energy options are more appealing than ever. But how do homeowners determine the strategy that makes the most sense for their specific situation?   This course provides an overview of the most efficient and practical systems: passive and active solar, wind, microhydro, geothermal, biofuel, and biomass. Through lecture, discussion, tours of local homes, and conversations with those homeowners, students will learn the principles, methods, and equipment associated with these renewable energy systems. Students will also learn to perform preliminary needs, site, and economic assessments; utilize their local incentives and resources; and determine the strategy that best suits their home site and requirements.   Course start time: Saturday, 9am Course end time: Sunday, 5pm
