She previously served as Vice President of Policy and Energy Markets at SolarCity and the Deputy Director for Policy, Midwest Program, at Natural Resources Defense Council. In 2013 Rebecca received one of the first awards for advocacy given by the prestigious C3E program, a project of Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Energy Initiative and the U.S. Department of Energy, which recognizes 10 mid-career women in energy each year.
