Appalachian alumnus Bill Pfleger explores ‘The New Energy Landscape’ through microgrid technology

During the kick-off talk in Appalachian State University’s fall 2018 Sustainable Energy Speaker Series: Alumni Edition, Bill Pfleger ’04 ’06 ’13 said the U.S. electricity system, which has served the nation for more than 100 years, “is standing on the brink of disruption” — and that’s a potentially good thing.
