Lee recently participated in an Advanced Energy System Boot Camp offered by LACI where they learned about microgrids and what it takes to successfully build one. At the end of the program, Lee led a small team of classmates to successfully design their own microgrid system. After completing the boot camp, Lee became very interested in working with microgrids as a project manager. Lee is excited to join the New Sun Road team where they can contribute to a more sustainable and equitable global society.
