“Thus, the rejuvenated house now includes a host of state-of-the-art green features, from geothermal heating and solar thermal panels (for hot water and electricity) to composting toilets. Skelton welcomed the opportunity to incorporate sustainable components. “It proves it can be done in such a way as to be non–jolting,” he says.”

How Green is My House
“Once she owned the property, she said, “I found myself in need of an architect.” Curtis and architect Jan Gleysteen of Jan Gleysteen Architects Inc. in Wellesley clicked, and together with builder Michael Lane and solar energy man Tom Wineman, they formed a team.”

“The installation will feature a grid-connected 2.5 kW turbine that will be mounted on a counter-balanced, tilt-up, mono-pole tower. The workshop will be taught by Ian Woofenden (Northwest coordinator for Solar Energy International), Richard Lawrence (director of special projects and education at Cape and Islands Self-Reliance and adjunct professor at Cape Cod Community College), and Tom Wineman (principal and lead installer of Clean Energy Design, Osterville, Mass.)
Cape Cod School Erects its Own Wind Turbine
“The 83-foot wind turbine at Upper Cape Cod Regional Technical School in Bourne, Massachusetts, has become something of an attraction since students helped install it this past summer.”
Small Wind Installer’s Apprentice Workshop in Bourne
“During this six (6) day workshop, participants will spend half the day in classroom sessions and the other half conducting hands on activities relating to the actual turbine installation. This working workshop requires active participation. Comprehensive handouts will be included.
The workshop will be taught by instructors, Ian Woofenden from Solar Energy International Home Power Magazine and Tom Wineman of Clean Energy Design.”
Public & Press Invited to View New Upper Cape Wind Turbine
“The German manufactured Aircon 10 kilowatt wind turbine is being installed on an 80 foot tall, tilt-up, counterbalanced, monopole tower designed by Clean Energy Design, a local renewable energy company. The installation will serve as a demonstration of the state of the art of wind turbines, which are designed to provide power for a home or small business.”
Kinetic Art at Sea
“Tom Wineman is an energy consultant who builds wind turbines on Cape Cod
who has sailed on Nantucket Sound for many years, so he naturally rented a
sailboat in Nysted to visit the wind park. “I love the feeling of wind power and
I love to sail,” Wineman said later. With both, “you feel there is a bunch of wind
power being converted.”
The Sounds and Visions of the Wind
“It sounded like wind – swish … swish … swish …” said Margaret Wineman of East Orleans, a retired chemist and teacher making the trip with her husband, Robert, a retired researcher, and their son, Tom Wineman, a Clean Power Now board member and energy consultant.
“It was far from an overwhelming noise, but when you are sailing, you hear that sound anyway,” Mrs. Wineman said. “I can see if you live near the turbines, it could be a problem.” To Robert Wineman, the sound is akin to “someone sweeping the floor with a corn broom.”
Turning Toward the Sun
“The prospect of paying $1,500 to $2,000 for heat over the coming months is making the phones ring at Clean Energy Design in Osterville, Massachusetts. Tom Wineman, president, says people want to know more about solar heating.”
