Kent Penning is a Renaissance man who loves what he does—helping to multiply an increasing number of satisfied customers from the work of Cold Craft, his company in the southwestern San Francisco Bay Area, established in 1991. Aside from enhancing Cold Craft’s reach, his interests range from martial arts to motorcycling, to teaching HVAC for San Jose City College, and enjoying fine wines. Always striving to learn about business operations himself, Kent is active in a local entrepreneurs organization. (Motorcycles and fine wines?) Like we said, a Renaissance man!
NATE Diamond-Certified status since 2002 has been maintained by Kent, and every technician at the company. The company carries California contractor licenses C20, C38, B, and C36. There is nothing in HVAC mechanical that Cold Craft can’t handle, and they are proud to be specialists in geothermal heat pump applications. Kent came up from the field as an HVAC technician before starting his company, and CaliforniaGeo is pleased to have Cold Craft as a member.

Martin Energetics is the dba of a consultancy that first operated as a residential design and solar thermal sales and installation effort in the early 1980s that included contract training for residential energy auditors and Title-24 workshops for California SMACNA. Its Principal was a full-time college instructor at the time and his remote location in the northern Sierra Nevada did not support this side business.
When Bill’s retirement from 35 years of teaching came in 2006 and plans for his “last house” were being finalized with geothermal in mind, the Martin Energetics moniker was revived. Within a three year period, a frenzy of activity ensued. Bill designed and built that house as the general contractor and electrician, and designed the geothermal system it carries today. He also was project coordinator on a 7-ton, two heat pump system in the same community. He went to Stillwater, Oklahoma for his installer certification, joined CaliforniaGeo, and became emphatic about carbonless Zero Net Energy.
His all-electric home completed its first year as a solar NEM customer of PG&E in November, 2015 and demonstrated Zero Net Energy positive performance by exporting 1,500 Kwh more to the utility than was used. Bill serves as CaliforniaGeo’s President.
