Principal Solar Inc., a publicly traded solar energy holding company executing a unique roll-up strategy to create the world’s first distributed solar utility, appointed Brenda Jackson, former chief customer officer and senior vice president of Oncor, Texas’ leading electric transmission and distribution service provider, to its board of directors.
Jackson’s expertise and experience in the electric energy sector will introduce opportunities for PSI to strengthen its market relationships and enhance the corporate value proposition.
“Brenda brings considerable talent for cultivating and sustaining relationships, and she will play a key role in expanding our affiliations with the traditional energy community,” said Michael Gorton, PSI CEO and chairman.
During her 40-year tenure at Oncor, which serves 10 million customers across Texas, Jackson played a critical role in customer operations, customer service and community relations. As senior vice president, she oversaw a team of more than 100 employees and, indirectly, the dedicated customer care and revenue management employees of a major contractor.
Throughout her career, Jackson has served on numerous civic and community boards. She currently serves on the board of the Diabetes Health and Wellness Institute at the Juanita J. Craft Recreation Center.
“The PSI team and its mission are energizing,” Jackson said. “I look forward to helping PSI build industry relationships and supporting their initiatives to make solar a mainstream component of the country’s energy supply.”
