Dale Pickering has been involved with electricity in some capacity for most of his life. He initially studied electronics to work in the computer industry. However, as he had an opportunity to broaden his skills, he began working in the construction industry as a journeyman electrician and was introduced to a whole new landscape in electricity.
As he journeyed through various opportunities, he was able to work as the Project Manager and Electrical Inspector for the Colorado Springs Utility on various large projects, including a new Wastewater Treatment Plan, Power Plants, and Water Plants.
After a successful conclusion to the Utility projects, he moved into the semiconductor industry and once again learned another application of electrical components, including the need for power quality. As the Principal International Electrical Engineer, he studied and applied this power quality to the plants where he worked (NCR, AT&T, and Atmel Corp.) both domestically and abroad, he found ways to improve their capacity as well as uptime with all the various pieces of electronic and mechanical equipment.
He wasn’t quite done with his expanding horizon, and he moved into the data center world at FedEx. As the Project Electrical Engineer for Power Quality and Sustaining Operations, he was exposed to electronics much more like he had studied at the beginning of his career. However, now he was applying electricity and power quality to the entire building and data halls that made a huge difference in the 24/7 international, multi-billion-dollar operation,
Dale continues to study and learn about new equipment and techniques that can help companies improve the clean output of their electricity, thereby allowing them to have more uptime, fewer or even no electrical failures, and, in the end, make more profit.
