Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course focuses on renewable energy sources which our very important for our future, and growing industry. It explains calculations, how it works and basically everything you want to know because Mr. Gary Price works with solar panels and does that for living. You can learn a lot about it and I recommend taking it.
I learned a lot about renewable sources in general and I learned a lot about calculations and the whole process of installation of solar panels and wind turbines. Calculations are not hard and there is not a lot of physics or math, but you have to read the book and understand the problem before you start it. You have to have a great understanding of what is problem asking of you and based on that do the calculations. There is a lot of things to consider when you are calculating for the installation of the system but with problems from the book, book itself and Mr. Gary's help you will learn a lot and understand a lot. He is willing to help so ask when you do not understand.

Advice for students:
Mr. Price is selling his own book for this class and it costs 40$. Book is not big, it has 9 chapters and you cover it all in one semester. HW assignments are from the book and you work on them in class and home. There is not a lot of work that you have to put in at home because he works with you on HW or whatever you need in class. His lectures are not long and conversation with him while he is lecturing is highly recommended. There is a final project as well, where you have to calculate the whole installation process of solar panels on your house with electricity consumption that you use. You can choose to do that or something associated with renewable energy sources. Good luck.
