I consider the use of Renewable Energy a tool in the toolbox, which should be used when it is viable and affordable to the end user. Environmental reasons are important to consider and when technology can justify its use, we can rely more on those renewable energy sources. Right now, total reliance on renewable energy is not economically feasible or reliable as a constant steady source of electricity. In the future, I believe we will be able to utilize alternate sources of energy production.
I am always open to the community for questions. I would be happy to visit in person, via phone or email. I have and will continue to make sure that the board and the district's business is always open and accessible to the public for which we work.
My priorities are to maintain affordable and reliable power to our customers, to continue education to support better decision making and understanding by our board. I will continue to encourage the construction and maintenance of our infrastructure that will make our district both more profitable and reliable to our customers. I will also make sure that the profitability is used responsibly by the administrators to keep our business financially sound and our rates affordable.
