Over the years, we have developed some concepts that merit further investigation.  As we move towards an “all-electric” island with large wind turbines in the ocean waters to the south, we need to think of the infrastructure we will need to make the most effective use of that electricity.  Some of our concepts are described in detail on the next pages.

Ocean-front Geothermal

An Intro to Ocean-front Geothermal Systems There is a vast quantity of free, clean, and renewable energy in our ponds, oceans, and the waters that surround the Vineyard. Through the use of geothermal heat pumps, we can collect and concentrate this low grade stored solar energy into high grade energy to heat and cool our buildings. This energy is available 24 hours…
