As a marine electrician, I design, sell and install high performance electrical systems. Batteries, inverter/chargers, high amp alternators, battery monitors, solar, wind and tow generators. I am a dealer for Ampair wind and water turbines. Installed many systems for cruising sailors, especially solar that supplied the power for refrigeration, the biggest load for sailors. The look on their face when they see no draw from the batteries with the refrigeration on endeared me to solar.
I also design and install grid-tie and grid-tie/battery backup for a CCEF certified company in CT.
I started out as an auto mechanic. I went to diesel engine school during the fuel crisis in the 70's and upon graduating went to work at Minnieford's Yacht Yard in the Bronx, the first of many boatyards. Was always the electrical guy which led me to be hired by Jack Rabbit Marine, the company that changed the way boats are wired.
