Power Systems Engineer


Power Systems Engineer

You can build as many turbines and solar panels as you like, but without connecting them to the grid, they aren't doing much. That's my job. I design and develop the generation, collection and distribution of our renewable electric power. Without me, all those electrons would have nowhere to go!
