i live in southern alberta and want to be in renewable energy.. any suggestions?

I may not understand your question. If you want to learn how to size/install about renewable energy, there is a college that teaches that: http://www.sanjuancollege.edu/pages/4003.asp

They turn out great students and are one of the top Renewable Energy colleges out there! (I know, we’ve hired folks who have graduated from there before)

If you don’t want to devote that much resource/time to it, there is alot of free learning, including free webinars at www.altestore.com. And there are also places that offer online and offline courses for $ like SEI http://www.solarenergy.org/ and MREA http://www.the-mrea.org/

I hope that helps!

    Not really sure that a college course is needed to learn how to build solar panels, wind turbines, or renewable energy. There are several books and videos available for free on the internet, just Google it.

    There is a great program at http://www.powersolutionsfromhome.info, that I have used to start harnessing the power of solar energy. Also lots of great articles here, http://www.squidoo.com/lensmasters/powersolutionsfromhome

    There is no standardized college courses yet in place for renewable energy. There are NABCEP certifications for Solar.

    Good college curriculum would be in Mechanical Enginnering or Electrical Engineering. Electrical tech degrees doing well right now too.
