Heeding an early interest in renewable energy, Craig studied solar system design in the 1980s at ARCO Solar, an early pioneer in the photovoltaics industry.
Craig’s experience in the electric power industry came during his tenure at Southern California Edison, during which time he was part of the engineering team that built the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station south of San Clemente, California. While there, he was head of the environmental compliance program for nuclear safety equipment.
Following this, Craig became the general superintendent at the Santa Anita Racetrack horseracing venue in southern California and was in charge of engineering, construction, and maintenance of the facility.
