I know few other people who can so skillfully trim months from project schedules that might otherwise seem inflexible, which is surely a testament to her problem-solving skills, her strategic planning abilities, and her ability to engage the people she needs to get the job done. She is also a pleasure to work with, which always makes the job easier."

"Jen Rouda is a very articulate and engaging leader. I worked with her when she was the lead project manager for Ecology & Environment, Inc. serving as the California Public Utilities Commission environmental consultant on the highly visible El Dorado-Ivanpah Transmission project (EITP) at the California and Nevada Stateline which now connects First Solar and Brights Source solar energy projects. I served as the project manager for SCE and noted that Jen played a key role driving the CPUC'S environmental review schedule for analyzing our license application for EITP. Excellent project management skills led to the quickest CEQA review possible with release of the Final Environmental Impact Statement in just 18 months from the date our filing was deemed complete. We received approval from the CPUC and Bureau of Land Management promptly after FEIS publication. Jen knows how to navigate challenges and find solutions when encountering multiple obstacles, and she is open and direct with her communication making her a great asset to any team. I fully endorse Jen Rouda as an exceptional strategic consultant for electric transmission and renewable energy project planning."
- Jerry Silva, reliability compliance manager, power supply, Southern California Edison (SCE)
