Bergen County Vocational-Technical High School, Hackensack, NJ.
This project was conducted by the Bergen County Vocational-Technical Schools (1) to develop a practical awareness of energy conservation and management techniques for both commercial and domestic applications; (2) to develop four training courses to teach solar troubleshooting and maintenance, commercial energy management control, domestic energy management, and photovoltaics and wind power; and (3) to purchase and install energy management control and solar equipment to teach both conservation and solar energy applications. In consultation with advisory councils, professionals in the field of energy management and solar energy, and instructors of various technical disciplines, the preliminary plans for four trade extension courses were developed by the project coordinator, a field specialist in the heating, ventilating, and air conditioning trade with expertise in solar and renewable energy sources. The project coordinator finalized curricula for the four courses and analyzed proposed equipment purchases from technical viewpoints. The following four courses were developed: Energy Management Controls, Energy Conservation for Residential Dwellings, Solar Troubleshooting and Maintenance, and Photovoltaics and Windpower Systems.
