I need to know some renewable energy systems.

The purchase/installation/maintenance costs for a college. Any information would be GREAT!

Yes, this is my college paper and I am having a hard time so I ask intelligent, smart people here in Yahoo Answers to help me out please. Thank you to all that try to help me.

Renewable energy comes directly from natural resources that can be constantly replenished such as wind, sun, wave and water. It is all around us, it’s just a matter of harnessing it. When it comes to using renewable energy, there are basically two options available. You can either buy a professional green energy system or you could start your own do it yourself renewable energy project. Buying a green source of energy system can cost you thousands of dollars but if you decide to start a do it yourself renewable power project you will only need to spend around $200 (If u are in United States).

If you are tend to purchase solar panel/wind turbine, you can do some research and find the minimum requirements needed and see if your residence is a candidate for solar or wind power or maybe a combination of both. Don’t forget to check with your local code enforcement officials for any restrictions or permits. You can ask the contractor you hired for the installation process and maintenance, but normally they don’t have a time to answer all of your questions.

On the other hand, if you prefer to build the system (solar panel/wind turbine) by your own, you can know all of the information you needed since you will learn step by step from the beginning until the end. It will also provide you the information regarding the maintenance of the system.

    For a college, be sure that conservation has been considered first, such as additional insulation, and LED lighting. Technology has advanced, so now a 34-watt fluorescent tube can be replaced with an 18-watt LED tube.

    If your college has a fleet of vehicles, consider recycling cooking oil from food and dining services into biodiesel. Not only is that renewable, it saves money, too. Many colleges have already converted.

    Solar, wind, and micro-hydro are the things that first come to mind for most people. The latter two require an ideal situation, and if they were applicable, you would know it already. Solar is a possibility, but university building often have things on the roof already. If you live in an ideal area, you might consider building a parking structure. It provides shade for cars and other activities such as farmer’s markets, festivals, or flea markets, and the energy produced by the overhead solar panels would be a small supplement (maybe 10%) to the college’s needs.
