ABOUT THE AUTHOR
C. Bruce Lowery is a retired power plant engineer. He began his career at the U.S. Navy Propulsion Engineering School at the Great Lakes Naval Training Center. He served in the fleet for 3 years, and qualified for the rank of 2nd Class Petty Officer.
After separating from the Navy, he moved to Kansas City, Missouri in 1971. He obtained a Class A Stationary Engineers License, and was hired by General Motors as a Shift Engineer at the Chevrolet Plant in Kansas City, Missouri.
During his 30 year career at General Motors he obtained a Master HVAC Mechanics Certification (Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning), and at the age of 49 graduated Suma Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management from Park University. He spent most of his remaining years at General Motors as an industrial supervisor heavily involved with energy management.
In 2003 he retired from General Motors. Within a year he started researching the effects of escalating energy prices on his retirement investments. Before long the research became both an obsession and a call to action.
That led to the birth of ‘Energy Consumers Edge’.
