Guldner named finalist for SEPA “Power Player of the Year” award


On June 28, the Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA) announced the finalists for the organization's 2020 Power Players awards, and APS CEO Jeff Guldner was one of only three industry leaders to make the cut in the "Individual Power Player of the Year" category.

The Individual Power Player of the Year award recognizes "an individual who, while working in the energy industry, has demonstrated leadership and innovation to significantly advance an integrated perspective of clean energy, distributed energy resources, grid modernization and its value as a resource to help meet the needs of their electricity consumers."

In listing Guldner as a finalist, SEPA provided a brief summary of his recent accomplishments:

Since his appointment as President in December 2018, Jeff Guldner has launched Arizona Public Service (APS) in a new direction, announcing a Clean Energy Commitment to deliver 100 percent clean, carbon-free and affordable electricity to their customers by 2050. This goal includes a nearer-term 2030 target of 65 percent clean energy, with 45 percent of the portfolio coming from renewable energy. Jeff has also made strategic organizational and leadership changes that align the company’s operations to support a future focused on customers, clean energy and economic development.

This year, SEPA received over 100 nominations across its eight Power Players Award categories, making it the most competitive field of nominees in the 15-year history of its industry awards. You can see the entire list of categories and finalists here.
