Q: What do you do on the TSS team?
I’m currently a licensed LRT (Limited Renewables Technician) Apprentice and take classes at Rogue Community College to learn the trade. I am a materials handler, which is an important role on the installation crew. I help make sure we have the right equipment in place on the jobsite to safely and cleanly install solar panels.
Q: What’s your favorite part of the job?
Knowing that my work is part of a movement towards a more sustainable energy future.
Q: What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned since joining the team?
Always double check to make sure you have all your tools and equipment before you leave for a job site!
Q: When did you first start thinking about solar?
I first started thinking about solar when I went to an all solar-powered music and arts festival put on by University of New Hampshire when I was a student there. It really opened my eyes to the possibilities around renewable energy and got me thinking about how to live a more environmentally friendly lifestyle.
Q: What’s your favorite thing to do in the sun?
On a sunny day, I'll usually go for a nice long trail run in the Ashland Watershed.
