“Ten years ago, we went on this path to start decarbonizing our fleet. We were probably ahead of others because we realized our old, smaller coal plants were not economic.”
“The utility industry certainly punches above our fighting weight in percent of woman CEOs in the industry. The largest representation of Fortune 500 Female CEOs comes out of the utility industry.”
“When I showed up to one of my first power conferences after becoming the permanent CEO, there were only two women CEOs in attendance, including me.”
“We view ourselves as an energy transformation company, that our role is delivering on our obsession and love of customers and doing that in a way that delivers on our love of the planet and need to transform to a zero-carbon future.”
“In 2006, when I became CEO, less than 2% of the CEOs were women. Today, there are 22% female CEOs – that’s huge progress.”
“Today we’re forty percent renewable, with hydro, wind, and a little bit of solar. By the end of next year, we’ll be fifty percent, and we’re rapidly scaling up over the next couple of decades.”
