Question: In what ways is your organization taking advantage of renewable energy resources?

Ben has a passion for project management and energy efficiency.  He started his career in rural South Africa, restoring a 150-year-old boarding school. One of the first projects Ben completed there was to install solar panels to provide hot water to the boarding students for the first time.  He is passionate about the solar and energy efficiency industries, as the benefits to individuals, communities, and the environment are far-reaching.  He has built his career serving others through many business and non-profit ventures and is humbled by the opportunity to educate homeowners and businesses on the future of renewable energy solutions.
