Renewable Energy - The Path to Energy Independence

September 20, 2011 - 6:00am

What are the latest renewable energy technologies available?  What is actually practical for our climate? The Solar Energy Society of Alberta and the Grant MacEwan Institute of Environmental Studies are offering this popular class again this Fall on Tuesday evenings. It provides an overview of photovoltaics, solar hot water, solar home design, green transportation options and more.

Tools will be provided to determine your own energy usage. Solar equipment will be demonstrated. Of interest to homeowners as well as people would would like to green their existing profession or start a new one, the class consists of seven 3 hour classes each on a different topic plus a Saturday tour of commercial solar systems.

Instructor Rob Harlan has installed over 150 solar electric and solar hot water systems. He has lived off of the utility grid in a solar house for 25 years. 

September 20 – November 1, Tuesday evenings 6:30 - 9:30pm
