San Diego Union-Tribune
San Diego Community Power, the new energy provider in the region that is in the midst of enrolling more than 700,000 residential customers, has hired a permanent CEO.
Karin Burns will take over April 18 after the board of San Diego Community Power, known as SDCP for short, voted 7-0 Thursday evening to hire her. Burns comes from the Bay Area, where she worked as vice president of corporate development at Franklin Energy, a company that works with utilities, local governments and businesses on clean energy programs.
SDCP “is an organization that I’m very excited to join because it brings together the two of my longstanding passions — clean energy and community development,” Burns said after the board’s vote.
Burns will take over for interim CEO Bill Carnahan, a longtime utilities and community choice energy veteran hired to help SDCP get off the ground.
