AMP's Vidhi Chawla Earns National "Rising Star" Award
ALAMEDA, CA – Alameda Municipal Power’s (AMP) assistant general manager of Energy Resources Planning, Vidhi Chawla, has won a prestigious “rising star” award from a national public power industry group.
At its national conference in Orlando, the American Public Power Association (APPA) announced today that Chawla received the Robert E. Roundtree Rising Star Award. The award is a scholarship presented to future leaders in public power.
Since Chawla started at AMP in January 2018, she has brought a new level of innovation to the utility’s work in the area of energy resources. She has contributed to the Alameda community in her efforts to maintain AMP’s 100% clean energy mix into the future and launch a rate plan to encourage electric vehicle ownership. She is also planning AMP’s large-scale solar project at the location of a former landfill.
“Vidhi Chawla’s work has had a direct, positive impact on sustainability in Alameda,” AMP General Manager Nicolas Procos said. “We are thrilled to see her receive this national recognition.”
Alameda Municipal Power (AMP) is a department of the city of Alameda that has served residents and businesses for 134 years. AMP provides 100% clean energy to more than 34,000 customers at rates that average 26% below neighboring communities.
