The first course is Renewable Electric Generation with Small Wind.  This workshop focuses on residential wind energy, but also touches on general concepts of electric generation with wind turbines. Utility and community scale wind facilities will be discussed.  At the end of the week, the class will take-down and install a Skystream 3.7 residential wind turbine. Credits: AIA, PDHs, GBCI CEs.

The second course is entitled Designing and Building a Sustainable Home or Small Building .  This workshop (part of the Green Building Diploma Series) covers integrated design concepts, green building programs, materials selection, building envelope, passive solar, and ventilation and indoor air quality.
