Cle Elum Residence, Kittitas Co. WA

Built on top of a rocky hill, this home site had many challenges.  The house is powered by a
wind turbine and has a solarium and Koi tank that was added a couple years after the initial
construction.  The owner raises champion show Koi.   
Not too long ago wind generation was considered a futuristic energy source with no
practical application on the horizon.  But when our client requested wind power as the
primary energy source for their new home, we sourced a 100 foot tower and a 10 KW BWC
wind turbine manufactured by Bergey Windpower Company.  The client will reduce energy
and fuel bills when the excess power from their private generator is sold back to the host
public utility.  When the 100-foot wind generator was installed, it was believed to be the
largest private residence wind generator in the state.

Testimonial from the Owner:
"The house looks terrific.  Mom and I were both commenting that we have not had the
chance to thank you enough for doing such a wonderful job.  It is really beautiful and
functional and houses don't get better than that."
