While at the City of Newton she was involved developing and refining a comprehensive energy policy for the City of Newton, Massachusetts. One of the most environmentally-progressive mid-sized cities in the nation, Newton engaged Ms. Ravin to modernize energy policy on a broad scale, coalescing the work of a number of departments, developing consensus across city agencies, involving community organizations, and driving the project to the point of implementation.
