San Luis Obispo resident June McIvor joins American-led Invenergy to support meaningful, long-term community engagement efforts across the Central Coast region for the Even Keel Wind offshore wind project

San Luis Obispo, CA – Invenergy, a leading privately held developer, owner, and operator of sustainable energy solutions and one of the three offshore wind leaseholders off the Central Coast of California, has announced the expansion of its California team with the addition of June McIvor who joins as the Even Keel Wind Community Engagement Manager.

On June 1, 2023, Invenergy was named official leaseholder of OCS-P 0565, an 80,000-acre parcel of seabed for offshore wind development by the U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM). Now known as Even Keel Wind, the project is in the early stages of development and builds on Invenergy’s proven track record of clean energy project development, American innovation, impactful community investment, and Tribal and stakeholder engagement.

“We are thrilled for June to join our team, as an integrated member of the Central Coast community. We believe it is critical that there is a transparent and collaborative process established with the local community at this early stage to support the years-long development and construction process for Even Keel Wind,” said Daniel Runyan, Senior Vice President and Head of Offshore Wind Development at Invenergy. “We look forward to the continued momentum of Even Keel Wind and to the ongoing dialogue and collaboration with interested stakeholders and community partners throughout the lifecycle of the project.” 

McIvor will lead the community engagement efforts of the project and joins the local Even Keel Wind team, which is focused on long-term consultation with local Tribes, fisheries, state, and local government officials to support the comprehensive engagement activities around this major infrastructure project. 

“As a resident of the SLO community for decades, I am deeply committed to ensuring that California and the Central Coast are at the forefront of the clean energy transition,” said June McIvor, Even Keel Wind Community Engagement Manager, Invenergy. “With professional experience across multiple fields, including serving on community boards and other volunteer work, I’m ready to take on this role to support productive local engagement efforts and educate our community about the benefits and importance of offshore wind. I am thrilled to get to work creating ongoing opportunities for open communication and input to ensure we establish common goals and a shared long-term vision for Even Keel Wind’s success as a community-oriented project.”
