Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition?
I'm working on an idea for a cooperative, non-profit business, that would enable members to cheaply build and install home and farm energy systems for electricity, hot water, heat, and cooking.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I see fossil fuels becoming expensive as well as unavailable in the future, and see the need for a transition to sustainable energy sources that do not damage anything or anyone.
Do you have particular interests, skills, talents or resources you would like to bring to Transition Whatcom?
I was a remodel designer and builder for 25 years. I designed and drew blueprints for underground and earth-bermed homes, and I know that any home can be altered for sustainable energy systems. I have 40 hours a week to devote to the transition, as I am now retired, and I need a good project!
In what neighborhood or part of the county do you reside?
I live in Bellingham, on N. Garden Street.
Where did you hear about Transition Whatcom and how did you find our community network website?
Richard Jehn, editor of Whatcom Watch, told me about you guys. He wants to publish my paper on my cooperative idea, which I have not finished researching.
