Prior to his work for the Blue Green Alliance, Kevin directed the Climate and Energy Program at the Minnesota Center for Environmental Advocacy, overseeing a team of attorneys, policy analysts, and communications staff to advocate for clean energy policy before state agencies, courts, and legislatures, including the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission.
