Allie detrio

CEO & chief strategist

Allie Detrio is the Chief Strategist for Reimagine Power, where she specializes in helping clients navigate continuously evolving energy policies and regulations so they can focus on innovating the way to a more sustainable clean energy future.  She has over 15 years of experience working in clean energy and sustainability holding a variety of positions in policy, operations, business development, and research

Detrio is known for her fierce advocacy work in the industry. In 2018, she was awarded the California Solar & Storage Association's Annual Award for her leadership in passing legislation to commercialize the microgrid market in California (SB 1339) and legislation extending the state’s energy storage incentive program authorizing $800M in new funding (SB 700). Recently, Allie was a key player in securing microgrid eligibility and funding ($700M) for California’s new reliability incentive programs (AB 205). 

Outside of RP, Allie serves as the Senior Advisor for the Microgrid Resources Coalition (MRC), where she manages all microgrid industry advocacy efforts in the west, including serving as an expert witness and providing testimony in multiple state legislatures and commissions, and is a registered lobbyist for the MRC in California. Prior to founding Reimagine Power, Allie was the Manager of Policy & Strategy at ENGIE, a global microgrid developer, the largest IPP and provider of energy services in the world, and where Allie cut her teeth on microgrid policy. 

Allie was one of the first in the world to receive an accredited B.S. in Sustainability from the Global Institute of Sustainability at Arizona State University. She was a cohort of the Decision Center for a Desert City and has minors in Economics, History and Philosophy.

Allie leads the microgrid industry's government and regulatory affairs, serving as Senior Advisor for the Microgrid Resources Coalition, where she advocates for microgrids, resiliency, new cleantech business models, and energy market evolution in the west coast.

Since leading the passage of SB 1339 (Stern) in 2018, California's landmark microgrid legislation, Allie has been a fierce advocate for microgrid commercialization at the CPUC. She has fully participated in all tracks of the R.19-09-009 docket, including submitting proposals for robust tariffs and advanced rate designs that capture grid services and resiliency value of microgrids. She has also worked with numerous clients to produce Community Microgrid policy roadmaps, regulatory engagement strategies, and political analyses that will inform California's vision for a 21st century grid that prioritizes community energy needs.

Allie continues to be involved in legislative initiatives for microgrids and community resiliency, working in partnership with the MRC and Climate Center to pass the Community Energy Resilience Act, and leading coalition efforts to fund microgrids, DERs and resiliency investments at the CA state legislature. She continues to be a vocal advocate for a new utility business model in California and market design changes that promote local clean energy development.


In 2021, Allie was re-elected to the Board of Directors of the Bioenergy Association of California and also serves as BAC's Chair of the Electricity Committee. Alongside BAC and leading Community Choice Aggregators (CCAs), Allie helped pass AB 322 (Salas) to prioritize grants for biomass and AB 843 (Aguiar-Curry) to expand the BioMAT program to CCAs.

Allie has developed sophisticated project implementation strategies and navigated interconnection for biomass microgrids for rural communities. RP has helped secure multiple grants for clients to evaluate biomass and community resilience investments. She is a vocal advocate for regenerative forest biomass, firm clean power resources, and rural resiliency initiatives.


Allie is a veteran and award-winning advocate of the solar + storage industry, promoting local clean energy solutions, energy independence, and customer empowerment in California. She is a prominent member of the California Solar & Storage Association, California Energy Storage Alliance, and supports numerous clients in the sector with policy and regulatory strategy.

Allie has had to play a lot of defense in 2021, playing a key role in helping to defeat AB 1139 in the legislature through grassroots influence and heroic coalition building efforts with many diverse stakeholders. She has been a leading advocate for the multifamily solar market in the hotly contested NEM 3.0 Docket at the CPUC. She has written extensive comments and testimony on the benefits of DERs for renters in apartments, correctly educated regulators on how electricity currents flow on the distribution system, and even cross-examined herself during the evidentiary hearing in 2021.

Many know Allie from her efforts in 2018, where she was awarded CALSSA's First Annual MVP Award for her leadership in passing SB 700 (Wiener) which authorized over $800 million in new funding for energy storage systems, expanding the Self Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) and accelerating cleantech market transformation in California. Allie continues to work with clients to build grassroots support for local solar + storage and influence positive outcomes for communities and customers in California and beyond.
