In 2017, Amanda led the re-design of Cascade’s residential and commercial/industrial rebate offerings. In the year since participation in the Residential programs has doubled, and millions of dollars in rebates have been paid to customers for making wise energy choices; the result is a cost-effective portfolio described by the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission as the “vanguard of comprehensive measures”.
