In this episode of SolarWakeup’s podcast I talk to Mary Barber of the Environmental Defense Fund. Mary has been the lead on the EDF’s work regarding NJ’s push for more solar and took part in Governor Murphy’s transition team on clean energy issues. We talk about the work ahead for the State and what she thinks is possible for the State.
Mary Barber has extensive experience in New York City government and nonprofit management. She served as chief of staff for former New York City Council Member Ronnie Eldridge where she directed Ms. Eldridge’s policy and legislative work. Following the City Council, Mary was the director of operations and external relations for a human services agency managing budget, development and government relations.
As EDF’s Director, New Jersey Clean Energy, Mary Barber focuses on climate and energy in New Jersey. She works with New Jersey’s Office of Clean Energy, the Board of Public Utilities, and the legislature to advocate for our clean energy priorities. She’s helping develop policy related to electric grid resiliency in the post-Sandy era and working to introduce new clean energy technologies and the finance mechanisms that fund them to New Jersey.
