Out of Waterloo, Ontario, Jose is an electrical engineering lead responsible for guiding, planning, and coordinating his team of engineers and technologists to project success. His philosophy? Trust. He doesn’t tell his team what to do, he helps them understand it so they can feel confident in doing it themselves.
Jose focuses on transmission and distribution projects, which is what he’s been doing ever since he graduated from Western University in London, Ontario. His experience includes voltage regulation calculation, transformers sizing, conductor’s selection, route selection, structure selection, sag and tension calculations, stringing charts and loading trees.
The most rewarding project he’s been involved in? The Windsor and Southgate solar farms, because delivering the projects on time and on budget—and with minimal supervision—made him feel like all the years he’s spent with his team had finally paid off.
Jose loves travelling by car, camping in the woods, and spending his spare time with family. He’s also a huge fan of The Matrix, which he posits is the “best film!”
