Pete Stocking has been utilizing alternative energy for most of his life. After graduating from Oregon State University with a science degree, Pete lived in the remote Oregon woods off-the-grid. Among the myriad of alternative energy devices employed in the off-grid cabin, solar thermal was one of the most important. During that time, Pete worked as project manager for Pacific Biodiesel on many diverse assignments - almost all of which utilized heat transfer fluids and their associated controls.
With Pete's competency in understanding the importance of project scope, time-line and budget while employing elegant and sustainable technology, he has become an invaluable team-member to Aqua Care Solar LLC.
Steve Ruby graduated from Red Rocks Community College in 1993 with a degree in Solar Thermal Technology, where he would later return to teach classes.
Steve has been designing and repairing solar thermal heating systems, solar spas, pools, and home heating devices for more than 30 years. His diverse experience as technician and environmental advocate coupled with his friendly charm make Steve a wonderful asset to Aqua Care Solar LLC and more importantly the solar industry as a whole.
