Ben Luce, Ph.D.

Discovery Estimator

Ben is a mathematical physicist, who happens to have an abiding interest and long-term experience with solar energy R&D, installation, and policy, fueled by a deep concern for the environment and the need to mitigate climate change. He likes to work as much on the development of particular solar projects – which is where one really learns how things work and the best way to optimize development – as on big picture issues such as global trends in energy technology and development, and governmental policy design.

Ben holds B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Physics. His physics background is very broad, encompassing for example the study of nonlinear phenomena, but also more traditional topics such as quantum theory and relativity, and very practical topics such as solid-state physics (e.g. solar cells), thermodynamics, acoustics, and electricity & electronics.

After becoming deeply interested in solar power in the early 1990s, Ben served as board member, vice-president, and then president of the New Mexico Solar Energy Association, from 1997-2007. With the NMSEA he acquired extensive experience with solar installation and solar education program development and delivery. After realizing the need for more supportive governmental policies, Ben became a co-founder, then co-director, and then director of the New Mexico Coalition for Clean Affordable Energy, 1999-2007, and in that capacity acquired extensive experience with renewable energy policy development and advocacy.

During those same years Ben was employed as a physicist at Los Alamos National Laboratory, from 1993-2007 to be exact, and served as Renewable Energy Program Manager for some years.

I then relocated to Vermont and served as a professor of physics at Northern Vermont University (formerly Lyndon State College) from 2008 through spring of 2023, acquiring fifteen year’s experience teaching courses in physics, renewable energy, acoustics, and electricity & electronics. During this time I also conducted research on the effects of snow on PV system production, conducted research for the State of Vermont, and worked on various other renewable energy projects and causes.

In 2023 I came to work with Buffalo Solar as a project estimator, wherein I perform initial designs of PV systems, estimate their production and potential economic savings, and develop proposals that are as accurate and detailed as I can manage. I am deeply passionate about this work, and remain as interested as ever in advancing the art of solar installation in general, including optimizing the integration of PV systems with battery and micro-grid systems, mitigating or managing the impact of snow, integrating systems with agriculture and with other commercial activities, and many other related topics. I can be contacted directly at [email protected]
