VHB welcomes Debbi Justice, PE, PMP, as Manager of Transmission Line Engineering. Her leadership has helped some of the largest energy companies on the East Coast navigate regulatory requirements, understand new energy policies, and reduce environmental impact.
Debbi’s experience in civil and structural electrical transmission line engineering brings a multi-disciplined perspective to clients’ challenges and includes civil and structural design, distribution underground, sectionalizing studies on distribution systems, and systems studies.
She is an advocate for advancing reliable, sustainable, and efficient energy initiatives that move transmission and distribution projects to completion and make communities more resilient. In a previous role, she helped facilitate the expansion of investor-owned utility companies like National Grid in New England and Alabama Power Company in the Southeast, where she managed several transmission line projects. She was instrumental in leading the delivery of a 200-mile transmission line for Xcel Energy in Texas and Oklahoma and the A1/B2 transmission line for National Grid (NGRID) in Vermont and Massachusetts. NGRID-NY trusted Debbi’s insight on preparing Option Solution Documents for their initiative to lower emissions by the year 2030.
“Energy clients across the East Coast need leaders like Debbi to address urgent challenges including climate change and aging infrastructure,” said Rich Lewis, Director of Energy Engineering. “Debbi has a rare combination of electrical engineering education and civil and structural experience that will both strengthen and broaden the engineering services VHB provides to electric utility clients.”
