This Summer, the Eagle Solar and Light will benefit from a second college student interning to learn more about renewable energy. Will Retersdorf was born in Nashville and lived there his entire life until graduating from Independence High School in 2015. As an upcoming Junior at Birmingham Southern College, where he is pursuing a degree in physics and is a member of the swim team.
Will is passionate about renewable energy and particularly interested in solar power systems and LED lighting. With his academic course work in physics, he has been able to implement his knowledge of circuitry with installations and wiring and assist the team on the largest solar install to date in Birmingham. He wants to gain more hands on experience in the solar industry and learn more about the design and planning behind installations. Once he graduates from BSC, Will plans to work in the renewable energy field to get additional experience before determining additional next steps.
