He is a registered professional engineer in the State of Nebraska.

In 2007 OPPD formed the Sustainable Energy and Environmental Stewardship Division and appointed Mr. Mueller as Manager. In 2009 OPPD established the goals of 20% renewable energy by 2020 and 50 megawatts of peak load reduction by 2012. In 2014 OPPD established new goals: 33% renewable energy by 2018 and 300 megawatts peak load reduction by 2023. OPPD’s sustainable energy initiatives also include these programs: Green Power; Green Tag; Energy Efficiency & Lighting; and Energy Star, among others. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about each of these programs as well as OPPD’s environmental stewardship initiatives.
