How I have Helped New York and The World Go Green
I learned about green buildings and indoor air quality in schools and how it children and asthma rates; having an indirect impact on environmental justice. Then I knew: school buses and the school own energy consumption affect the bottom line, indoor air quality for the students and pollution from power plants.
In 2000, I worked for the New York Power Authority (NYPA) where he created the NYPA/TH!NK Clean Commute Program which leased 100 electric vehicles in the New York Metropolitan Area. This program was covered by USA Today, Associated Press, Reuters, New York Times, CNN, Good Morning America, the Today Show, and others. This is the largest electric vehicle station car program worldwide. While at NYPA, Seth also worked on the donation program for low speed vehicles.
I also worked with the two large low speed electric vehicle companies in the United States. They were Global Electric Motor Cars (GEM) and the TH!NK Neighbor (previously from Ford Motor Company) all across New York State. From Brooklyn to Western New York we placed thousands of these cars to spread them around for people to see and appreciate electric cars (in one shape or form).
While at NYPA, I even had the pleasure to work with New York City of Transportation staff on electric vehicles and watched (as well as helped a little…) so the Lighting Group in the Energy Services Department of the New York Power Authority. 99 percent of the time did electric cars but I know and had a little part in the change out of all the traffic lights from incandescent to light emitting diodes (LED). That’s what got me the impetus to write the book Green Lighting. I am greatful to have been a little part of that. The group even showed me CFL technology. The Energy Services Group at the New York Power Authority every day works to provide inexpensive, reliable clean power for many customers in the State of New York and is also the nation’s largest publicly owned utility.
NYPA even keeps the lights on and the backup power for NYC too. In addition whenever you ride a subway or look at a street lamp, that power is brought to you by the New York Power Authority for the City of New York and the MTA.
LED Traffic Light in London I saw them change NYC to LED Green Lighting. Cool.
Recently, I was even interviewed for Take Part, a web site that offers “in-depth, unbiased information to a diverse audience in a way that lets people learn, form opinions, reach out to others and take actions that have real impact in the world.”
To read the author interview, please click Here. I know it is for me going to the Sundance Film Festival. That one was interesting..Yet, I always thought there was more to what I was trying to convey to the end users of the green technologies, energy efficient products or simple things that being green. It’s everything we do can and should be green for green living sake..
Now I’m even hosting a REALLY FUN AND FUNNY blog talk radio show at The Green Living Guy Show.
So, that is why I am considered the Green Living Guy. I’m not perfect. I am just a guy. However, if we can make everyone green gurus then that is some good green living.
