How our people power WAPA forward

A few months after the publication of its strategic plan, Power Forward 2030, WAPA is kicking off a “How I Power WAPA Forward” campaign, featuring both written and video vignettes of employees sharing how they contribute to WAPA’s mission and strategy.

“WAPA’s employees help turn Power Forward 2030 from a written plan into on-the-ground action and real results,” Chief Strategy Officer Kerry Whitford explained. “We are eager for employees to identify and share how their work connects to WAPA’s strategic goals.”

Administrator and CEO Tracey A. LeBeau kicked off the video campaign with the release of her own “How I Power WAPA Forward” video. In it she shares, “I want to get us thinking about how we will all participate in … Power Forward 2030. Each of you plays a critical role in powering WAPA forward through your contributions and commitment to the communities we serve.”

LeBeau also shares how she powers WAPA forward by giving employees the resources they need to thrive, collaborating with our customers to solve shared problems, and partnering to ensure grid reliability to achieve a resilient energy future through 2030 and beyond.

I work in Folsom, California, and I power WAPA forward by … helping WAPA prepare for and adapt to the changing energy landscape and by ensuring our rates reflect the lowest costs possible.

I work with my team to ensure we are aligned to provide great customer service, and I listen to our customers to make sure we understand their needs and challenges. Electricity markets are expanding in the West, and I feel it’s my responsibility to keep an eye to the future to make sure WAPA is positioned to continue delivering on its critical mission.
