Michael began his career as an engineering designer at his father’s firm, G&B Consulting Engineers. He worked on designing and analyzing solar systems for residential and commercial projects to help reach Net Zero Energy design. His experience at G&B and research in wholesale energy markets led to his transition to PG&E as Real-Time Asset Manager.
