Suzanne has helped a number of the region's most respected wineries install large geothermal heating/cooling and solar power systems and is working with local banks, businesses, and other partners to accelerate the shift to distributed renewables across the region and state. She is focused on the critical connections between on-the-ground realities and national and international policy efforts.
