What you will learn:
Where ever there is wind, there is power. Wind energy courses begin with an understanding of the history of wind energy. Later, while using specific terminology, students learn to identify and classify a variety of turbines. Students also learn how these turbines convert wind into electrical energy. All wind energy courses offer classroom instruction that focuses on theory as well as safe hands-on activities. LCC’s campus neighbors an impressive wind farm. Students have the opportunity to see the local wind farm up close and see how it is interconnected with the power grid. Colorado has the potential to
supply 9% of the nation’s electrical needs through
wind-that’s 67 million homes.
Solar energy is one of the fastest growing industries in the US, generating an estimated 13(GW) of clean renewable electricity, employment in this field is growing exponentially. LCC’s solar energy courses start with the fundamentals of photovoltaic construction and transfer into design, installation, and troubleshooting a working solar system. Students apply technology and learn from qualified instructors to acquire an education that sets them apart from others in this growing field.
LCC’s lab offers a safe state-of-the-art setting for students to move forward with their electrical understanding. Energy courses offer everything from theory, to the power distribution system from the power plant to the circuit breaker box. Students learn voltage, apply laws, construct and test circuits, trouble shoot, explain and work with electromagnetic devices, and more through LCC’s electrical courses.
