Executive Director Maura Collins announced that VHFA has selected Ken Pulido (he/him) of South Burlington in the newly created role of Director of Energy Finance.
Pulido has a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California-Irvine and an MBA from Stanford University. He has worked as both a banker and developer in the energy and finance sectors, including most recently as a consultant working with Vermont utilities on decarbonization efforts. He is also a member of the South Burlington Energy Committee. Pulido has been consulting with VHFA for the last year on its Weatherization Repayment Assistance Program (WRAP), before accepting a role as a full-time staff member.
"Ken’s expertise has been invaluable in getting WRAP started," Collins remarked. "We are delighted that he has joined the Agency in our efforts to help Vermont reach its energy and climate goals.”
In his role as Director of Energy Finance, Pulido will continue his work on the Weatherization Repayment Assistance Program (WRAP), an initiative to design an innovative payment mechanism that will allow more Vermonters to participate in comprehensive home weatherization projects. He will also lead VHFA’s broader activities in the energy finance area including working with other State agencies, non-profits, utilities and others to develop financing structures and programs for a range of new energy initiatives.
