What interested you in working at Clean Energy NH?
I've been working in and on clean energy for most of my life so seemed like a good addition to my resume.
What were you up to prior to working at the organization?
After a decade in retirement (working for free on greenhouse gas [GHG] reductions), I decided to return to working (to pay for my next electric vehicle [EV], heat pump, etc). I was about to restart my business when I decided this was a better option.
Why did you decide to work in the clean energy industry?
While in grad school in Arizona, I discovered sun harvesting (some worked, some not so much). What’s not to love about abundant, free fuel? I was hooked.
Describe your position in more detail. Who will you be working with and what will you be doing?
As an energy efficiency and solar specialist, I’ll be working with citizens and municipalities in the Monadnock Region to save them money and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
What aspect of your job excites you most? Why?
Sharing the savings from energy efficiency (EE) & photovoltaic (PV) with my neighbors and getting them to embrace it with measurable results.
What advice would you give to your younger self?
Pay attention, be in the moment, carpe diem.
