Clean Energy Design is comprised of an expert solar team with many years of hands on experience. Founder, Tom Wineman, brings over twenty five years of comprehensive technical experience in renewable energy systems and energy efficiency. You might say that Tom is a bit obsessive with attention to detail and maximizing the performance of every system he installs!
Tom has completed scores of successful installations in institutional, educational and residential buildings, which attest to his capacity and quality of work. He is a specialist in site analysis, system design and installation of multiple renewable energy system types including photovoltaic, wind energy, and solar thermal.
Tom and his company have installed numerous battery backed and off-grid solar systems starting in the late 90’s. Beginning in 2002, he designed and installed three types of off-grid renewable energy systems for Race Point Light Station in Provincetown, MA including solar PV, solar thermal and small wind energy systems. In addition, he has specified and installed numerous stand-alone and grid interactive battery backed systems, including a community garden water supply project in Sandwich, MA.
In addition to such technical work, Tom has also assisted in developing policy and model zoning to lower barriers and facilitate the implementation of wind power and other renewable energy technologies. He has been a key member of several local environmental & clean energy advocacy organizations. He was also instrumental in the development of early Massachusetts renewable energy incentive programs such as the Solar-To-Market Initiative and the adaptation of legislation that expands the versatility of net metering across the Commonwealth.
Tom’s commitment is further demonstrated by his dedication to providing educational outreach & workforce training for renewable technologies. He designed and developed a renewable energy demonstration trailer, which over the course of a decade appeared at dozens of schools and educational events. He has instructed a number of photovoltaic, solar thermal system, and wind training workshops for all types of students. He also has participated in NAPCEP certification workshops and served on the exam committee for the development of the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) solar thermal certification program.
