Episode Info:

On today’s episode, we sat down with TPU Director Jackie Flowers, who came on board in August and is the first woman to hold the position permanently.

Jackie came to Tacoma from Idaho Falls, and has managed public utilities for 19 years of her 26-year career. We talked about what she sees as the utility’s priority focus areas, how lower income folks can get help paying their bills, TPU’s impressively clean energy portfolio, the future of advanced metering in Tacoma, electric vehicles, how to combat the rumored “bro” culture at TPU, and — you guessed it — Click.

We got to most of your listener questions, too! Thank you for submitting those.
