PUD 1 Commissioner Jack Janda was reelected to serve as vice chairman of the Energy Northwest Executive Board according to Energy Northwest (ENW) which just announced their election results for the 2013-2014 executive board. Janda has served on the ENW board since 2003 and as an executive board member since 2005. In addition to being PUD 1’s District 3 commissioner for the last 12 years, and an ENW board member, Janda has also served on the Washington PUDs Association board since 2001 in several capacities including secretary, treasurer, vice president and president.
“It is such an honor to serve on the executive board of Energy Northwest and I am grateful to those that have entrusted me with this position” stated Janda. “The value that our PUD 1 customers and other ratepayers across the state receive from Energy Northwest is low cost, carbon free energy 24/7.”
Formed in 1964, Energy Northwest develops, owns and operates a diverse mix of electricity generating resources, including hydro, solar and wind projects – and the Northwest’s only nuclear power plant. These projects provide enough reliable, affordable and carbon-free energy to power more than a million homes each year, and that electricity is provided at the cost of generation. Energy Northwest is comprised of 28 public power member utilities across the state, including Mason County PUD No. 1, serving more than 1.5 million ratepayers.
Janda’s term has been renewed for one year beginning July 1, 2013. Additionally, PUD 1’s District 1 Commissioner Karl Denison was elected to serve as president of Energy Northwest’s Participants Review Board for the 2013-2014 term.
