Ann is focused on advancing OneEnergy’s photovoltaic solar project pipeline in the Pacific Northwest, as well as prospecting new development opportunities nationally. Shepherding projects through the development cycle to construction, Ann is involved in obtaining site control, permits, interconnection agreements and power purchase agreements for OneEnergy’s solar assets. During her tenure at OneEnergy, she has served as the regional lead developer for the now-operating Oregon projects Steel Bridge Solar (3 MW), Blue Basin Solar, Phases I & II (5 MW), and Woodline Solar (10MW).

Horizon Wind Energy). In 2012 she joined the team at EDF Renewable Energy, developing mid-sized solar projects in the West and marketing the broader pipeline to energy customers and utilities. Her prior experience was in communications, managing public relations accounts at an agency for large corporate and non-profit clients.
