David Bradford, the ANCA Energy Circuit Rider will be presenting at the RACOG meeting. His presentation will include switching lighting districts over to LEDs and he will also be giving an overview of NYSERDA programs for municipalities. The meeting will start at 6:00pm at the village of Carthage municipal building.
David Bradford’s introduction to alternate energy sources was as a Methane Gas Technologist with Peace Corps Ecuador. He took a winding path to graduate training in physics after a stint as an investigator for the FDA. David came to the North Country in 2000 to join the Physics program at SUNY Potsdam. He has taught at all four institutions of St. Lawrence County. He has taught meteorology, photovoltaics, astronomy, electricity, and more. Research interests can be summarized as investigating interesting electromagnetic properties of new materials. These are the type of materials important to the development of renewable energy technologies and he has kept abreast of developments in this area.
David has been fully engaged with his north country community as soccer coach even after his two daughters exhausted their eligibility. He served on the Potsdam Village Planning Board and currently is a trustee for the Potsdam Public Library. Sometimes he can be found canoeing our wonderful streams and lakes, when not working to make his home net carbon zero.
