Patrick Thompson Joins 159 Board

Patrick Thompson, a clean energy entrepreneur, has joined the 159 Georgia Together volunteer board of directors this fall. He champions causes for those people and things which don’t often have representation.

“We are excited to have both Patrick’s environmental expertise and his experience in the political arena,” said Allison Leach, co-chair of the 159 board of directors. “Patrick does a wonderful job of tying sustainability issues to social justice issues and brings people to the table to discuss solutions to both.”

Thompson has run for state and federal positions to give progressives a voice in the political arena. He received Environmental Leadership Award for improving Smart Grid and is trained in Solar PV and hot water, EVs, LEED AP, Energy Management, as well as being a lighting efficiency professional. Thompson recognizes the dilemma of our time as those with the most learn sustainability and travel to the margins passing it on to growing economies as a best practice.

Thompson holds a B.S. in biology and psychology from Mary Washington College and holds a computer science degree, and studied entrepreneurism at Georgia Institute of Technology, as well as earned an MBA in sustainability from Green Mountain College in Vermont, the top school in the country for sustainability,
