Eric has a long history of being a part of the clean energy power sector. Before he arrived at Koda in 2008, he worked at the Fortistar Plant in Inver Grove Heights where he vacuum-pulled the methane off of decomposing trash to power nearby gas turbines. Before this, he got his start in the industry by serving six years in the U.S. Navy’s nuclear division. His service included spending two years on the USS Jacksonville 688 Class Fast Attack Submarine out of Norfolk, Virginia.
But life above water is where Eric spends his time these days, and he tells us the work is incredibly rewarding because of Koda’s mission, and its contributions to cleaning up the planet and strengthening the state’s economy as a job provider.
