RENEWABLE ENERGY INSTITUTE (REI)
Using methodology developed by the Renewable Energy Institute instructors, participants will learn to understand and evaluate the many considerations that affect the generation and sales of renewable energy in New Mexico, including metering solar and wind resources, land use and siting, interconnecting to the electrical grid, key state and Federal regulations affecting renewables and pricing energy.
NEW: This year’s REI course will include Automated Renewable Energy Site Assessment (RESA). Attendees will be granted access to the RESA website to enter site data and create a customized renewable energy site assessment report for their New Mexico site of interest.
Class begins at 9:00 a.m. and will finish around 4:00 p.m. with lunch at noon.
