An Interview with Military Veteran and Renewable Energy Leader: Mike Blaha

“One thing that the military did teach me was the technical side of completing jobs, so once I got into the electrical industry, it was natural to want to specialize in this. Renewable energy was what interested me the most.”

Meet Mike J Blaha, who on November 1st, 2021, was interviewed by Jessie Hunt from Powering New Mexico. Mike, a New Mexico resident of 33 years is the Director of Operations at OE Solar, an innovative solar EPC based in downtown Albuquerque. Powering New Mexico was interested in learning how Blaha’s military experience correlates and benefits with his current occupation in the energy sector.

“The undefinable skills that the military trains you in will always be an asset to the world around you.”-Mike Blaha (2021)

Jessie asks “What is one thing you’d like the public to know about the work you do?”.

Blaha responds “Renewable energy is moving forward very quickly. Now is the time to embrace this and make the world a better place for generations to come.”
