“As an independent contractor, I work with various clients, including industrial, commercial and agricultural clients. My history includes working as a maintenance engineer and maintenance supervisor in large surface coal mines. In 1991, I went to work for the Montana Power Company, which then became NorthWestern Energy, I implemented and helped design programs to promote energy conservation and renewable energy. in 2005, I went to work at the National Center for Appropriate Technology, and also started contracting engineering, as David Ryan PE. I became full time self employed in 2013. Along with developing many conservation and distributed energy projects, I also do pre-development work on large scale wind projects, including meteorological tower installation and maintenance.
I received the North West Energy Coalition’s Conservation Eagle award in 2000, and the Alternative Energy Resources Organization’s Sustainable Energy award in 2010. I am a founding member of the Montana Renewable Energy Association. I live in Butte, Montana.”
