Freeman served in Chief Executive positions at the largest power authorities in the world, including New York Power Authority, the TVA in Tennessee Valley, and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.
In spite of, or maybe really because of, being the consummate insider in energy production, Freeman is one of the most brilliant, funny and knowledgeable critics of fossil fuels and nuclear power. Freeman closed down 8 nuclear reactor projects during his tenure as Chief Executive at the TVA, and one more when he was General Manager of the Sacramento Municipal Utilities District in California.
