Pepco Region President Reappointed to D.C. Sustainable Energy Utility Advisory Board

WASHINGTON, D.C. (August 3, 2017) - Donna Cooper, Pepco Region President, was reappointed to the District of Columbia Sustainable Energy Utility (DCSEU) Advisory Board. In this position, Cooper will continue to provide strategic counsel and recommendations to the Department of Energy and Environment (DOEE) and Council of the District of Columbia on the procurement and administration of the Sustainable Energy Utility (SEU). She also will be responsible for reviewing and advising the DOEE on the performance of the SEU.

Cooper is committed to seeing the SEU fulfill its most fundamental role: helping residents and businesses in the District of Columbia use less energy and save money. Since 2011, the SEU has delivered financial incentives, technical assistance, and information to thousands of District residents and businesses to help them save millions of dollars on energy costs.

"Donna's reappointment to the SEU board is a clear representation of the important value and support our employees provide organizations across our service territory," said Dave Velazquez, president and CEO of Pepco Holdings. "We are proud that Donna's continued role will help support the facilitation of important energy efficiency incentives and programs that are helping our customers use less and save money."

As Pepco Region President, Cooper is the primary executive responsible for leading stakeholder engagement, including state and local officials, community leaders and business, consumer and nonprofit organizations within the Pepco region. In that capacity, she plays a critical role in shaping policy and managing issues that directly affect customer's cost concerns. Cooper's organizational affiliations include the District of Columbia Chamber of Commerce board; the Greater Prince George's Business Roundtable; the Washington, D.C., Economic Partnership board; Worksource Montgomery; District of Columbia Building Industry Association board; and D.C. Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy board. Cooper was awarded a bachelor's degree in political science from South Carolina State University, a master's degree in public affairs from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and a doctorate of philosophy in political science from Howard University, where she focused on public administration and American government.
