Greg Salas joined Group NIRE in October of 2017 as the Field Site Technician at the Reese Technology Center. Greg’s focus is to provide technical support to the SWIFT site, Group NIRE’s ongoing microgrid effort, and the Power America venture.
Greg works on commissioning the small-scaled wind farm at SWIFT, which includes three V27 wind turbines and two 60-meter Met towers. He also helps with the design, installation, and maintenance of serval invertor and battery circuits for the Group NIRE microgrid. Greg also assists with Power America, whether it be testing components or helping build circuit boards.
Prior to joining Group NIRE, Greg worked as a maintenance supervisor at a fully automated distribution center for Cargill Meats in Friona Texas. There, Greg obtained several skill sets that have carried over and proven valuable as the Field Site Technician at Reese.
While working at Cargill, Greg attended Clovis Community College in 2013 and earned an Associates of Applied Science degree in Industrial Technology Plant Operations and Equipment and an A.A.S in Wind Energy.
