CT’s energy task force representatives recently attended a Geothermal educational workshop on state-of-the-art ground source heat pump technology, hosted by the Clean Water Fund with support from the Tremaine Foundation, Hampshire Foundation and Common Sense Fund.

Pictured are Glenn Weston-Murphy, chairperson of the Guilford Energy Task Force; John Sima, engineer for Hydro Dynamic Engineering, LLC, and member of the CT Geo Assoc.; Woodie Weiss, workshop organizer and chair of the Madison Energy and Efficiency Committee; Phil Rawlings, Director of Geothermal Services for Trison Construction, Inc.; and Guy Wanegar, geothermal contractor for A&B Cooling & Heating Corp. and member/first president of the CT Geo Assoc.

John and Guy specialize in residential and small commercial installations, while Phil contracts with large commercial and municipal projects. One of Trison’s municipal projects that is nearing completion is a multi-site geothermal application at three schools and the Library in Stafford, CT.  (A large solar installation will soon be built to power the ground source heat pumps; both renewable energy projects are being implemented by the Stafford Energy Advisory Committee).
