Matt Stein

Matt Stein is currently working on a project to transform a brownfield/superfund site in his home town of Portland, OR into a renewable energy focused industrial business park.  In conjunction with this venture, he is working with an existing company to acquire used wind turbines, recondition them, and get them back into productive use.  The plan is for this and other companies to establish their operations on the brownfield site.  This is the result of Matt’s two year transition out of his previous career as a Captain of tour boats, charter boats, and private yachts.  Matt received his BA in Political Science from Whitman College in 1991 followed by a nearly two year flight school stint in Seattle, WA.  When not studying wind turbine power curves or persuading EPA officials to “get real”, he enjoys all the beauty that the Pacific Northwest has to offer with his fiancé Mich and his dog Duncan.
