Encore Renewable Energy, a leading full-service community-scale renewable energy project development company, announced today that Kate Desrochers is joining their team as a Project Manager. Kate joins Encore from Packetized Energy, where she worked as a senior manager for projects and initiatives deploying grid-edge load management technologies. Kate is excited to join the Encore team to continue building on her eight years of consulting and project implementation focused on decarbonization. Kate grew up in St. Johnsbury, VT and currently resides in Burlington. She holds a Masters in Business Administration from the Quantic School of Business and Technology and BA in Geography from Dartmouth College.
“This may seem like a strange time for a career move, but implementing solar projects is right where I want to be,” said Desrochers. “We’re at a critical juncture in the energy transition, and the Encore team is making an impact.”
Chad Farrell, Encore’s Founder and Chief Executive Officer, said “We have a number of innovative clean energy projects under development here in Vermont and across the Northeast, and adding someone to the team with Kate’s background and passion for fighting climate change will help us to advance these efforts.”
