Over the years I have worked for a Construction/excavating contractor, a plumbing/heating contractor, and an insulation contractor, all serving commercial and residential costumers. I spent numerous years as an industrial electrician/maintenance technician and several years as an electrical controls technician. For 17 plus years I spent with a municipal utility system. Responsibilities included managing a power plant with 4 fossil fuel generators. My primary focus on reliability of the generating units that ranged in size from 2.5 megawatts to 19 megawatts. I was project manager of the rehabilitation of a 5 megawatt hydro electric plant and the construction of a distribution substation. During this time I was also the operations manager of the entire utility. Beside power production, the utility consisted of electric distribution, water treatment/distribution and a telecommunications system
