    I teach several courses at the Yestermorrow design/build school in Warren, Vermont. The Yestermorrow website has these course descriptions, plus information on a host of other courses and workshops for those interested in designing and/or building sustainably.

    My summer course for 2017 is a weekend workshop on solar design, August 5th and 6th. I will co-teach it with John Ringel, one of the founders of Jersey Devil, who is one of the most experienced architects in  the solar design world. John will teach the passive solar part, and I will cover the active solar – electricity and hot water.

     Workshops and Classes

    I am available to teach workshops at conferences, architectural offices, and colleges. I have taught classes on code compliant photovoltaic installation to electricians. I have given guest lectures at the University of Vermont, Dartmouth, The Institute for Social Ecology, and Vermont Technical College. I have made presentations at conferences at Middlebury College and Dartmouth, and at an energy forum at the Boston Museum of Science.


    The style of my presentations can range from a standard lecture format to a hands-on project. I can cover the renewable energy front from the nuts and bolts of system installation to global energy policy.
