Past American Public Power Association President Glenn Cannon of Waverly, Iowa, is taking on the role of Clean Energy Ambassador to rural electric cooperatives (RECs) and municipal utilities in the upper Midwest. Until January, Glenn was General Manager of Waverly Light and Power, where he led the way to impressive strides in lowering customer bills by improving efficiency across the system.
This year Glenn is taking Waverly's successful business model to RECs, municipal utilities, and regulators in several states. Armed with new Department of Energy analysis about cost-effective efficiency potential, Glenn is showing managers how to trim the fat, lower customer bills, and reduce demand for fossil fuel energy. Some of the biggest supporters of new coal plant proposals are small RECs and municipal utilities. A smarter approach would be increased spending on energy efficiency, which provides needed power at a lower cost to each consumer, less risk, and lighter environmental impacts. Glenn's presentation, "A Business and Ethical Case for Energy Efficiency", helps small utilities make a cost-effective change.
