Electrical Engineering Technician

My job is to support the Electrical Engineers in building our renewable energy sites. I conduct tests of electrical systems, prepare charts and tabulations, and assist in estimating costs. I live in the world of volts, watts, amps and ohms. Just yesterday I was testing the conductivity of copper versus aluminium wire.
