Changing jobs has become more common over the years but especially this past year during the pandemic with the struggling economy. I had the opportunity to change both job and industry when I joined Melink Corporation in February of 2021. It has been an amazing learning adventure. First, I learned that a new industry requires me to understand many new acronyms to keep up with conversations. Melink “New Guy” credentials permit me to still be amazed and delighted with the products and technology that Melink offers, and I am still learning to communicate effectively in my new home away from home. Here is an example of a statement that could be made here at Melink:
Range Anxiety. It’s no surprise that this is a common concern of those who are hesitant in making the switch to electric vehicles (EVs). How can owners of electric cars confidently take a long drive without a plethora of charging stations along the highway? Gas stations are everywhere. Why should EV charging stations be any different?
Often, people shrug their shoulders at their first anniversary at any job. It seems like getting to that one-year point is more of a mandatory steppingstone than an accomplishment. As I reflect on what my last year has been, I believe it is worthy of a recap.
This was a real call we received. And it is not an uncommon issue in temperate zones, mostly in the spring or fall, in many parts of the United States. The cause of over-pressurization, or your doors unable to close, is an energy savings measure your HVAC system is trying to utilize.
At Melink, our mission is to change the world one building at a time. To do this, we focus on helping decision makers implement sustainable solutions. Sustainability has many faces; renewable energy, water conservation, waste reduction and management, economic sustainability, and energy efficiency to name a few. For me, one of the most enjoyable aspects about the projects I work on is seeing the electric usage go down like a clearance sale on Cyber Monday or seeing the natural gas usage cut down like a wrestler trying to drop weight classes (or even consumption rates on a utility bill for that matter).
