Keeping the lights on in Los Alamos County has proven to be quite the undertaking. Numerous power outages have plagued the county over the past several months and despite the Department of Public Utilities’ efforts to fix the problem, the outages have continued.
Things, however, have changed a bit in the last three or so months. In October, the Department of Public Utilities hired Rafael De La Torre as the electrical engineering manager. An Española native, De La Torre previously worked for Jemez Mountains Electric Cooperative and brings about 20 years of experience to his new position.
De La Torre is a 1983 graduate of Española Valley High School. He attended New Mexico State University where he obtained his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in electrical engineering, with an emphasis on power. He completed the Electric Utilities Management Program and graduated in 1989. The next 16 years were spent as an assistant engineer and director of energy and operations for Jemez Mountains Electric Coop., where he was responsible for the entire electrical grid for the coop.
