Cool. Found it. I didn’t know there was a spreadsheet. Although the sample for power p.e. is very low.

 

anyone who has not contributed to the spreadsheet and is willing to share, what salary range would be expected for a newly licensed power P.E.?

I took October exam last week so not licensed yet and 5 years experience in heavy electrical construction making $160k+ including my bonus

Care to give your location? That salary sounds great for a town like mine, but prolly not for a bigger city...

That's unreal.  I make $70K and I have 15 years experience in the MEP field.

Power engineers with 10-15 years on the gulf coast in the petro/chem industry are getting that.  And having a PE does not really mean a whole lot.  I know I won’t be getting a raise if I pass.  It’s more of just a personal goal for me.

My total compensation is about 100k with my bonus and  stuff. I won't receive a pay bump when I pass. Im T&D at a consulting firm.

I think it depends from company to company & industry to industry. I just got a 1000 $ bonus, thats it.

I seriously believe I'm underpaid, even without the PE, based on what I'm reading.  I work in the Nashville area and live south of Nashville where the cost of living is much lower compared to a metro area, so that helps, but I have a 42-45 minute commute.  I enjoy what I do and the people I work with, so that helps.  

Lycee, what is T&D?  I worked at a consulting firm for over 10 years as an electrical designer.

I believe that stands for “transmission & distribution”

@MEtoEE T&D = transmission & distribution. I do substation design for a consulting firm. I'm also underpaid. My company touts their bonus and retirement package as more than making up for it. I tend to disagree with them

Beware of big consulting firms out there which are always hiring. They usually have a hiring & layoff season. ;)
