John Daley – Electrical Systems Manager
John didn’t mean to become an engineer. After life experiences changed his original career path (and lucky for us), John capitalized on his technical aptitude and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Union College and then went on to achieve a Master’s Degree. John started his second career working as a project engineer for the Navy’s nuclear propulsion program, crossing paths with John Moynihan.
After the Navy experience, he started commissioning of mission critical Data Centers and power distribution instrumentation and control systems. When the opportunity to work at Cogen presented itself, in the form of recruitment call from John Moynihan, John seized the opportunity to return to the Capital Region and spend more time with his family.
John takes great pride in ensuring that the very complex CHP electrical equipment, systems, and protection are implemented to meet the design intent and within the projected schedule. Known for his dry wit, John sees humor in most situations and is always known to lighten the mood.
