The Energy Evolution with Tom Szulist

Tom & Vivianne with solarThe Energy Evolution:

Harnessing Free Energy from Nature

Nature produces energy by slow, cool, implosive means – by a centripetal inward motion, while our present culture uses explosive centrifugal (outwards) movement, which is wasteful and many times less powerful and effective. It also uses up the Earth’s resources and pollutes her ecosystems. 

This workshop will examine the nature of energy, how energy flows and sustainable systems that draw on the power of the sun, water and wind.

We will explore systems as simple as geothermal tanks and passive solar techniques, to more active systems like Rocket Stoves, geosolar and thermal mass.  The workshop will include a hands-on building of a solar dehydrator. This workshop will leave you with an firm understanding of energy and the possibilities of collection, storage and flow.

Facilitator, Tom Szulist

Tom was formally educated as an industrial engineer and worked in industry for 3 years before becoming an investment broker for 29 years. He specialized in venture capital with a strong interest in renewable energy technologies. In 2007 Tom retired from the investment business and he and his wife started Singer Farm Naturals.

The headquarters of the farm is our 1840’s barn that we sustainably rehabbed using straw bales, SIP panels, as well as extensive recycled and repurposed materials. The Legacy Barn is heated with a high efficiency indoor wood gasification stove supplemented with a solar-thermal heating system. The farm also has a 15kw solar-photovoltaic system, as well as a 10kw wind turbine.
