Mr. Day received his Bachelor's of Science in Electrical Engineering at Tennessee Technological University in 2001. From there he started his career in power systems at the Tennessee Valley Authority where he was a telecommunications planning engineer. In this role he designed the telecommunication and control systems used in the operation of the power system. After leaving TVA, Mr. Day went to Florida Power & Light as a field relay engineer, which required installation, modification and maintenance of the relay and communication systems used for reliable operation of the power system. Before leaving FPL to come to NEETRAC, Mr. Day led a team of six engineers to evaluate the necessary changes to the FPL substation policies and procedures for compliance to the NERC CIP standards.

At NEETRAC, Mr. Day works with various utilities in the areas of cyber security, power system grounding and high power testing. Mr. Day helps coordinate the NEETRAC high power testing projects at the S&C Electric ATC High Power Lab.
