Phil Schneider is lead system designer for Creative Energies. After receiving a degree in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering from Purdue University, he put his problem solving skills to use as a wilderness engineer at the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS). Cold fingers and heavy backpacks led him to settle down with Creative Energies in 2006. Here he is passionate about deploying renewable energy in a thoughtful way, and always interested in finding the best solution for our customers. He lives in Flagstaff, Arizona with wife Blair and energetic daughters Isa and Sylvi. Phil still aims to spend as much time outside as possible, camping and hiking with family and making sure the mountain bike trails stay well tracked. He is a NABCEP certified PV Installer.
