Maura Farver is a State Energy Policy Director for North Carolina and is based in the Duke Energy Raleigh Office. She led and is currently leading the 2022 and 2023 Solar Procurements for Duke Energy Carolinas and Duke Energy Progress and is heavily involved in the interconnection study process, as the results, timeline, and interdependencies are all impactful to procurement.

Maura’s early electric utility experience was at Southern California Edison, where she began with coordinating the company’s energy storage strategy. She then led the measurement initiative for the Preferred Resources Pilot, and later served as the Short Term Planning Manager, in which she managed a team that developed and maintained the strategy and models for the company’s day-ahead bids for the California Independent System Operator’s energy market.  

Maura also has extensive experience in behavioral science and marketing with Duke University’s Center for Advanced Hindsight. There, she leveraged behavioral insights in partnership with banks, credit unions, and financial nonprofits to nudge customers to take financially healthy actions, such as save more money and pay off debt faster.
