RTR Energy Solutions is pleased and proud to share the news that on May 21st, 2021 our own Sherri Wilson graduated Magna Cum Laude / Kappa Xi Chapter of Delta Mu Delta National Honor Society with not only a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration but also a minor in Psychology from DeSales University.
Anyone who has earned a degree while working full time knows it can be particularly challenging and the quote above is particularly appropriate given Sherri spent seven years non-stop working toward her degrees. She worked full-time, always in her good humor, managed family life, and attended night classes in pursuit of her degrees.
Sherri joined the RTR team in January 2017 after 8 years with PPL as an administrative supervisor and works as an office administrator coordinating projects on the PPL system for RTR. Congratulations Sherri we are extremely proud of you.
Led by our Technology Services Manager Mike Kunkel (FAA licensed drone pilot), RTR has created a program to provide aerial surveying, inspection, mapping and thermal imaging both as stand alone services and to support our Outage Coordination, Surveying, Project Management and Environmental groups. Mike has years of drone piloting experience and in addition construction manager Jim Mylin, and Senior Surveyor Bud Miller, recently obtained their licenses as UAV (drone) pilots.
Currently the RTR aerial fleet consists of two units: a Yuneec 520 equipped with a FLIR (forward looking infrared) camera capable of capturing both hi-res video and thermal imaging and an Autel EVO capable of capturing video at 4k resolution at 60 frames per second.
By combining state of the art hardware & software, decades of experience, a family environment and a problem solving mindset RTR is uniquely capable of meeting our client’s technical needs both on the ground and, now, through the air.
