CPA Happenings

Tell us about your background.

My background is steeped in the renewable energy and environmental sector, specifically in the areas of solar project development and carbon benchmarking in addition to mitigation and sustainability.

I have previously worked with project developers, building owners, finance partners and energy off-takers to evaluate and develop renewable energy projects.

Having been in this field for a while, it is exciting to see many more businesses using renewable energy, as well as seeing electric vehicles become the standard versus the exception, and the idea of environmental sustainability becoming mainstream.

What responsibilities do you have here at Clean Power Alliance?

My role at Clean Power Alliance involves working with our customers and member cities on their accounts, default rate changes and program enrollment. I work to retain our customers with enhanced account services, education on CCA’S/CPA, bill/rate analysis, energy and bill savings opportunities and program enrollment.

I also strategize with other groups at CPA including rates, marketing, procurement, and programs to provide customer feedback and ideas for new offerings.

What are you most proud of in working here at CPA?

As a dedicated environmentalist, I am excited to work in the renewable energy sector which is one of the most impactful areas in the field. I work with large users of energy and convincing them of the benefits of using carbon free, renewable energy is very rewarding. CPA is a small, but mighty organization that is doing great things in the renewable energy sector and local communities!
