Andrew Butts, MS-STEP '19

While Andrew Butts, MS-STEP '19 was studying at the Humphrey School, he started a nonoprofit organization that connects consumers to green energy options through local utilities.

Butts' Green Neighbor Challenge recently won $100,000 from the Environmental Justice Data Fund, which is seeded by Google.  Congrats, Andrew! 

"One day in class, I learned I could sign up for Xcel's Windsource program for a fraction of my inhaler's co-pay charge monthly," said Butts, who worked as a freelance videographer and supply chain analyst at SC Johnson before attending the Humphrey School.
