BayREN Water Bill Savings Program Manager

Chris Cone is the Program Manager for the Bay Area Regional Energy Network’s regional Water Bill Savings Program. The program will enable participating municipal water utilities to offer customers a simple path to install water efficiency upgrades with no up-front cost — by allowing customers to pay for upgrades through a monthly surcharge on the water bill at the improved location with the assurance that bill savings exceed the surcharge.

Chris has administered residential energy efficiency programs, facilitated program-industry collaboration, and advocated for performance-based clean energy policies. She has worked with non-profits; local, regional, and federal agencies; and building efficiency associations, and authored reports on clean energy industry advances. Chris received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Sonoma State University and is a 2008 fellow with the Leadership Institute for Ecology and the Economy.
