Wanda Davies, a wind energy developer from Roseville, champions the technical intricacies that are vital for advancing clean energy in Minnesota. Supporting Fresh Energy as a Power Circle donor is a key way she speeds the transition.

“I’m an energy nerd with a more-than-casual familiarity with the electric grid,” says Wanda, who’s worked on all stages of wind energy development, from leasing to project management. “Details about how to add more renewables to the grid might sound boring, but it’s critical to making the clean energy transition happen quickly.”

Wanda remembers learning about Fresh Energy while volunteering on the Sierra Club’s Clean Air and Renewable Energy Committee: “I was impressed with the quality of Fresh Energy’s work and its willingness to dig into complicated issues knowledgeably,” she says.

Wanda’s unrestricted donations empower Fresh Energy to facilitate efficient grid integration and clean energy deployment to meet Minnesota’s 100% carbon-free electricity by 2040 law. In her words, “There are no easy answers to these technical problems, yet Fresh Energy is able to provide effective solutions.”
