As part of community radio station KOOP’s focus on International Women’s month in March, Shades of Green producer John Hoffner and co-host Stacy Guidry interviewed IREC’s Jane Pulaski and Austin Energy’s Leslie Libby on their careers in the renewable energy industry in Austin and in Texas.
For more than 20 years, Leslie Libby has managed Austin Energy’s solar incentive programs from it’s inception in 2004 until summer of 2013. Austin Energy has provided customers with $40 million in incentives which has allowed 3000 participants to install 15 MW of PV systems on their rooftops.
Jane Pulaski, who joined IREC in 1999, covers web and social communications for IREC. Before joining IREC, she spent 17 years in working for the State of Texas in a variety of communications positions including the State Energy Conservation Office, The Texas Department of Agriculture, the Texas House of Representatives and the Texas Senate.
