Alexandra is responsible for representing and advocating for customers in MCE’s service area who have been traditionally underrepresented in the renewable energy narrative.

She received her MA from UC Berkeley in 2014, after completing her thesis on small-scale, decentralized, renewable energy systems for rural electrification in Nicaragua. Alexandra joined MCE in late 2015.
