The Kingdom Episode 19: Interview with Michael Skelly

Published: Oct 16 2019

As part of our book club at Soluna, our team read Superpower: One Man’s Quest to Transform American Energy by Russell Gold. We had the pleasure of talking to that man, Michael Skelly.

Michael pioneered the move to wind energy in 2000, when renewable energy provided only 10 percent of the power in the US, according to the Energy Department.

In this episode, CEO John Belizaire guides a conversation with Skelly to learn more about his experience establishing the second largest wind power company in the US and the five phases of a development project. John also asks about Michael’s emphasis on leadership, culture, and values at Clean Line, to which he says:

“You have to constantly be learning, a culture of learning. In order to do that, you have to make sure people feel free to ask dumb questions.”

And -- stay tuned until the end for some awesome book recommendations!
