A great summary of options I can use to provide Green power to my home. Some are impractical (Biomass) but others are pretty easy.

I really liked this course very much, it's easy and comprehensive. It helps you to get a general point of view of how to use renewable energy in our homes.

This course is presented as a PowerPoint with an accompanying document explaining the Project Rating Box. Used throughout the article, the box is a matrix utilizing the criteria of difficulty, cost, maintenance, home value and savings to analyze a project’s environmental, economic and health benefits. It is a straightforward approach to assessing the viability of a homeowner integrating renewable energy into their home.
Solar, micro-hydropower, wind, biomass and geothermal are each examined utilizing the Project Rating System. While sometimes simplistic in the explanation of each source or potential green and renewable energy, it provides a good, basic understanding to aid in the decision-making process. This course could potentially serve as an introduction to the broader range of options particularly for homeowners, however, many of the reference and resource links are outdated and it is unclear as to why the last two slides regarding data centers are included.

This is a very good article that covers the basics of the top five renewable energy sources that can be used for residential. Each renewable source is explained in details from its definition, pros and cons, maintenance, cost, how to select it, and other tips. The article is organized very well, easy to follow and understand. The visuals are excellent. There is a short quiz that is very easy. This article is a good reading for anyone who is interested in learning about renewable resources. Also, a good list of resources included in the article.
