Autumn Summers
Project Developer

As a Project Developer at Enerfin, Autumn spearheads the development of utility-scale renewable energy projects, specializing in wind, solar, and storage solutions. She holds a B.S. in Environmental Science from the University of Virginia, where her passion for environmental research led her to explore shoreline migration rates of marshes at the Chesapeake Bay using ArcGIS.

 

Autumn's journey with Enerfin began as an intern, where she played a crucial role in de-risking over 1 GW of solar projects through resource, environmental, zoning, and land due diligence. During her final year at university, she returned to Enerfin as a supporting developer, contributing to land campaigns, consultant management, and the delivery of key project milestones.

 

Growing up in the Shenandoah Valley, Autumn brings a love for nature and adventure to her work. When she's not advancing renewable energy projects, you can find her gardening, cooking, reading, hiking, or kayaking, embracing the great outdoors.
