Elizabeth Desjardins

Staff Engineer

“I enjoy working on a variety of projects with different project teams across various communities, allowing me to learn and grow continuously. Participating in a project as it evolves from an idea to construction and then seeing those projects around New England is a rewarding experience.”

Environmental Engineer Liz Desjardins works on both private and municipal projects, specializing in site/civil projects including renewable energy, stormwater management, and utility infrastructure. She is known for her work in renewable energy at Tighe & Bond contributing to multiple solar energy projects up to 60MWDC in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New York. Some of these projects include her contributions to the design of an 8.1-megawatt (MW) solar project in Worcester, Massachusetts on the Greenwood Street Landfill and the development of Nutmeg Solar, LLC’s 19.6MW solar project that will power about 4,300 homes in Enfield, Connecticut. While her work spans many facets of a project, she has become a go-to engineer in the firm for her expertise in the development of stormwater management analysis and design, and preparation of stormwater pollution control plans for solar projects.

In 2020, the Environmental Business Council of New England recognized Liz as an Ascending Leader. This award is given to professionals early in their careers who are demonstrating leadership and exceptional contributions to the energy and environmental sectors.
