Innovative ideas for every utility

Get to know the people behind Opower

Looking for information on Opower? Perhaps you googled your way here ... and we're delighted you did. Perhaps you hit that button on the What is Opower webpage that said "Who is this?" next to the picture you see above.

So, to answer the question, this is Paul McDonald, Senior Director of Industry Strategy at Opower. Yep. He's a real dude (not an Istock or AP model).

He's one of the people behind the power of Opower. He has a passion for the brand and a passion for energy efficiency/demand-side management in general--and how it can change the world.

So, who better to represent Opower on its webpage than one of the people making that brand happen and helping that brand make a difference?

Not only is Paul the current face of Opower, but he's also got a lot to say on the subject. Read more of his insights on the blog here, here and here

And get to know more members of the team.


Here's Paul with the leading voice of Opower Scott Neuman. GVP. This lovely snap was taken recently to illustrate an interview with Public Utilities Fortnightly. (You can read that right here.) 


This is Vanessa Richter, regional VP of sales with Opower (and her lovely family). Learn more about Vanessa and her family's journey to live the clean energy dream that Opower is a part of. You can read all about their journey to putting solar on their home here

Here are a few more pics of our Opower team members (and there will be new cover models to come from our group). And that graphic they're holding? It's Pluggie, the Opower icon.
