Walter Lee has 20 years of experience in the energy services industry. He is a solutions-driven professional who is passionate about working in what he refers as complex energy “adventures.”
He enjoys developing energy audits for large and small educational institutions across the U.S. He conducts energy audits of mechanical, electrical, and domestic water heating systems at commercial, industrial and institutional facilities. Walter performs the selection of energy conservation measures and energy cost reduction opportunities to be included in energy efficiency and sustainability projects. In between projects, he enthusiastically designs small and large photovoltaic arrays and small wind turbine systems.
Walter is an expert in solar energy engineering applications, including photovoltaic and solar water heating. He is a passionate and devoted promoter of solar and renewable technologies applicable to every aspect of present and future human endeavor. His pioneering spirit and mindset has led him to develop successful projects that are first of its kind in educational institutions. His proudest achievements are the development of one of the first Massachusetts solar photovoltaic arrays on a school’s rooftop in Newburyport, Mass., in 2010, and the first demonstrational wind turbine in 2009 for a New York school in Monticello, NY.
During his senior year of college, he was president of the student chapter of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineering at SUNY Stony Brook and was awarded that school's Engineering Leadership Award for leading the chapter in hosting a regional student conference, and among other things, being the best salsa dancing student among his fellow engineers.
