We head out to the West Coast for Episode 28 and welcome Beth Vaughan to the program, Executive Director of the California Community Choice Association. A 20+ year veteran of the California Energy scene, Vaughan takes us through her career starting out in New Zealand and the adaptation she made traversing through state policy in the Golden State and working alongside – although not always harmoniously – the large-scale investor-owned utilities.
Now as Exec. Director of the Cal-CCA, Vaughan is as the helm of bringing more than 20 CCAs together, is responsible for 10M customers and has helped spur innovation that is benefitting all Californians. And with it being March and International Women’s Month, Vaughan shares how women in the energy ranks are making a major impact – starting with the Cal-CCA.
It’s an entertaining and highly informative listen – so sit back and enjoy.
