Occupation: I am an engineer by training (Virginia Tech) and then I added an MBA. But when it comes to energy efficiency, I am mostly self taught from reading and most importantly by doing. Part of that is reading Mother Earth News and back in the day traveling to the demonstration site in western N.C., prior to us building our first home.
