Les Carter holds a master’s degree in public management, a master’s in business administration, both from the University of Maryland in College park, and a bachelor’s degree in construction management from Brunel University, London in the UK. Currently, Les is a Strategic Advisor for Dominion Energy where he is responsible for the regulatory, data, metrics and finances for the Strategic Underground program, where outage-prone overhead lines are converted to underground. Prior to this role, Les worked in a number of management roles at Dominion, and other positions in banking and at the Virginia Department of Corrections. His primary focus as a doctoral candidate will likely be in the renewable energy area, with a possible focus on programs for solar power provision to low-income communities, net metering or consumer willingness to pay for green power. In his free time Les is likely to be out cycling either on country roads or gravel trails in central Virginia.
