Personal Comments:

Hobbies...too many and not enough time, but RE's been in my blood since '68 when I used solar to power my pirate AM radio station (just kidding FCC!) I'm a ham radio operator (KC2FSW)and am into anything that promotes self sufficiency and sustainable living.

Business Comments:

I'm a NABCEP Certified Small Wind and PV installer, an Eligible Installer for the NY PV and wind incentive programs and co-chair the NABCEP small wind technical review committee.

I'm a board member of the Small Wind Certification Council (SWCC) and the Distributed Wind Energy Association (DWEA).
There's even more, but the message here is that I volunteer for WAY too much stuff!

Although I still do installations, most of my time is dedicated to teaching small wind and PV installer courses for various community colleges, tech schools and organizations in several states.

We generate all our own power at Four Winds for both home and business using a 768 watt solar array, a Whisper H1500 and a 5-KW gasoline generator. We disconnected from the power grid in April of '97 and don't miss that bill one bit!
