Abstract

This project determined the feasibility of four alternative energies in municipal buildings. The four alternative energies are; wind energy, solar energy, biomass, and geothermal. There is a technological report on these four energies and how they work. After understanding, in depth, how each alternative energy worked, we were then able to make equations to discover the economic and environmental feasibility of each alternative. With these equations already set, any consumer can easily input their own data into these equations and receive an unbiased result for the feasibility of each alternative.
