Jim Steiner is an Energy Consultant with SunBridge Solar. He was born in Vancouver, went to high school and college in Idaho, and then moved back to SW Washington to be near family. Going to Space Camp and designing/building an Electric Vehicle as part of a high school engineering team, he’s always had a strong foundation in science and engineering.
He pivoted to environmental causes and solar when the Port of Longview was evaluating a coal export terminal upwind from his son’s nearby elementary school. He worked with a group of citizens to successfully block progress on the coal terminal. He then moved to Portland to join the solar industry.
Working as an Energy Consultant since 2015, he enjoys meeting his community, educating them on how they get power, and helping them create clean, renewable energy.
