Leonard J. Beck (Len or Lenny) earned an associates degree in accounting from the University of Delaware in 1977, a bachelor of science in business administration from Wilmington College in 1999 and a master of business administration in 2000 also from Wilmington College (now known as Wilmington University). He began his career as a public accountant for several dozen small gas stations and ‘Mom and Pop’ type businesses, later managed an assembly department of 50-plus employees for an office equipment manufacturer, and then worked in positions of controller and marketing management, before beginning his current 11-year employment with Delmarva Power and Light (owned by Pepco Holdings, Inc. in Washington, D.C.). Mr. Beck’s interest in electric vehicles began in the early 1990’s while employed in the position of international marketing manager with a solar cell manufacturer. He sold photovoltaic solar cells and modules to college student engineering teams that built race cars to compete in U.S. races and those held in Australia. In 1996, he designed a 3-wheeled all-electric car, but never took the ideas from paper to prototype due to the low potential driving range. At Delmarva Power, Len’s current responsibilities in his electric and gas utility regulatory work are tariff and pricing related, yet he is considered one of the most knowledgeable electric utility employees in the country on the topic of vehicle-to-grid technology. Len’s work papers on the V2G topic, and others, have been shared nationally with other utilities and interested parties.
