Jordan Macha
Gulf States Representative, Sierra Club

Jordan Macha is the Gulf States Representative for Sierra Club based in New Orleans. For the past two years, Jordan has worked to move Louisiana beyond coal-fired power and encourage the investment in clean, alternative energy. In 2009, she worked with community groups to encourage Entergy to move beyond coal and cancel their proposed Little Gypsy coal-fired power plant. In 2010, Jordan worked with the Louisiana Public Service Commission to adopt a Renewable Portfolio Standard pilot program, the first in the Deep South. Currently, she is working with the Louisiana Public Service Commission to develop an Energy Efficiency program to help fund weatherization and energy efficiency projects across Louisiana. The Sierra Club has worked extensively in New Orleans developing weatherization projects since Hurricane Katrina and would like to see similar programs across the State. In the Gulf, she is working with impacted communities from the BP oil disaster to help ensure restoration to the region.
