About Joseph M.

I was into energy and resources conservation long before it was known, justifiable or trendy (1990’s)

I installed, programmed and maintained pharmaceuticals building automation, initially setup just for monitoring and security, but had to sneak in lighting, temp and HVAC controls for cost and energy savings.

At the NCARNG I began their conservation and efficiency programs with systems and building upgrades, improved design standards, overall policy and mindset changes to better support personnel, improve or extend missions, today and far into the future while lowering costs to taxpayers.

I was an attached civilian, NGB Federally supported and funded, working with Guard-members during their missions and activities to improve conditions in NC and shared successes and failures with other Guard Units across the USA.

I am hoping to help and we, the USA, need Service-members to learn, support and expand Energy Management and Resources Conservation for a better greener future.

NOTE: In full disclosure due to medical issues I was discharged on disability so have lots of free time, knowledge and desire to assist others just don’t know how but was hoping this could help me and Service-members alike?
