    Hey everyone,

    I'm really interested in the renewable energy field and was wondering if anyone knew of any great resources to learn more about how the various technologies (wind, solar, tidal) work, including general and recent information. If anyone knows of anything great out there I'd much appreciate it. Thanks.

    Mostly solar related, but tons of links. Not really commercial or industrial, but little better than backyard projects.

    Plenty of projects and info, mostly wind. Mostly geared toward people wanting to lose the electric bill...

    That's awesome, thanks. How feasible do you think a project like the wind generator would be for someone just graduating with an EE degree?

    Once you figured out products and installation, I think the main hurdle would be having your plans conform with the NEC and getting your project approved by the AHJ (authority having jurisdiction). I'm a solar systems designer for residential projects, so I face that in my work every day.
