Building Wind Energy at Scale with Michael Rucker

Episode Summary

Michael Rucker is the founder and CEO of Scout Clean Energy, a renewable energy development company headquartered in Boulder, Colorado. After helping craft some of the earliest global climate change agreements, Michael decided that he could have the greatest impact in the private sector. People thought he was crazy when he began working on wind power, but time has proven him to be prescient, as wind is now the most cost-effective source of power on the grid. The Scout team brings over 60 years of renewable wind and solar energy experience, specializing in leasing, permitting, interconnection, power marketing, finance, and construction.
