The first episode of our new podcast! Today we talk about “The Power of Local” and what it means to be a locally active utility. Innovation comes from a local level in this industry, and while utilities are often pushed to change through internal factors, customers are increasingly looking for better products and better relationships with utilities.

Later we speak with our guest, Karl Popham, Manager of Emerging Technologies and Electric Vehicles at Austin Energy. He talks about Austin as a local market and what his work in that community has meant for the city and for Austin Energy’s identity. He also gives us a scoop!
