Solar Energy

The potential for and solar energy in the United States is enormous, and this Amarillo College program inspires students to learn about the many electrical and mechanical properties that applicable to alternative power. With support from the National Science Foundation in 2010, AC added a Solar component to its renewable energy curriculum. Students receive highly relevant electrical, mechanical, energy and safety instruction.
