RDC At The Forefront Of Alberta’s Energy Future

By Sheldon Spackman

Alberta’s energy future was the focus of a special ground breaking ceremony held at Red Deer College on Wednesday. Shovels hit the dirt on the south end of campus to start construction on a $10 million dollar Alternative Energy Lab, with the Federal government and RDC splitting the cost 50-50.

College officials say the lab will be on the leading edge of teaching, demonstrations and applied research in the Alternative Energy field. Over one thousand RDC students are expected to benefit from the lab each year, especially in the fields of Engineering Technology, Electrician, Instrumentation Technician and Carpentry. It will also save the College roughly one million dollars each year in heating and energy costs through the use of alternative energy such as solar power.

Construction on RDC’s Alternative Energy Lab is expected to be complete in April of 2018.
