Steve Schneider Listed Among Green Technology Leaders of North Bay

March 24, 2011 1 comment

Congratulations to ZAP Jonway Co-CEO Steve Schneider for being listed in the North Bay Business Journal’s list of 46 leaders in the Green Technology business community. Published in the March 21 issue of the North Bay Business Journal, the report highlights 46 North Bay professionals in various fields who have been leading development and implementation of environmentally sustainable technologies, such as solar electric and geothermal energy, erosion control for better stream water quality and energy-efficient construction.

Other notable inclusions to the list, to name just a few, are Mike Benziger of Benziger Family Winery, Grant Davis of the Sonoma County Water Agency, Greg Fowler of Constellation Wines, Ann Hancock of the Climate Protection Campaign, John Kennedy of Autodesk, and John Schaeffer of Real Goods Solar.

Schneider said his interest in electric cars and green technologies started at an early age.  When he was very young, his parents moved the family away from the hectic urban-lifestyle of New York to raise their children on the undeveloped island nation of Roatan off the coast of Honduras. Schneider said he was literally cut off from civilization, with no running water, no electricity, no television, no radio, no roads and no cars.  It helped him develop an appreciation for the environment which he still carries to this day. Ironically, his father was the first person to introduce a motor vehicle to Roatan, a moment Schneider remembers fondly and one that apparently made an indelible impression upon him throughout his career.  After moving back to the United States, Schneider’s first job was working at an auto dealership at the age of 17.
