As a Project Manager on SBC’s Climate & Energy team, Meredith Anderson works to help communities in the Sierra Nevada mitigate and prepare for the impacts of climate change through different climate planning strategies.

Originally from the Chicago area, Meredith has been living and working in the Tahoe region since 2018. She is a graduate of Santa Clara University and holds a B.S. in Environmental Science, specializing in Water, Energy, and Technology, and a minor in Political Science. Prior to joining the SBC team, she worked as a Program Associate for California’s Statewide Energy Efficiency Collaborative through ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability and before that as a CivicSpark Fellow with the Sierra Nevada Alliance and the City of South Lake Tahoe, where she worked on energy efficiency and climate planning efforts.

Growing up around lakes in the Midwest and Canada, Meredith gained an appreciation for outdoor recreation and the natural environment. Meredith lives in South Lake Tahoe, where she enjoys getting out on the lake and into the mountains, working on embroidery projects, and cooking for friends.

Introducing CTA’s new building decarbonization program for the Truckee Tahoe area

The  Climate Transformation Alliance (CTA) is launching a new program to address building electrification in the region, called the Truckee Tahoe Building Decarbonization Pilot Program. Sierra Business Council (SBC), the nonprofit facilitator of the CTA, will be responsible for implementing this program, which is funded through a $500,000 award from a private donor. Over the next two years, the program will support the shared goal of achieving a carbon-free community for Truckee and North Lake Tahoe.
