Kim Wheels moved to Colorado in 2005 to take renewable energy and green building design courses with Solar Energy International in Carbondale, CO.  Since then, she has lived in the Telluride region, after moving here to gain renewable energy experience working with Veritas Solar in Norwood designing and installing solar PV and hot water systems.
