Eric Teegarden: County PUD Commission, Snohomish County

Eric Teegarden is running for the Snohomish County Public Utility District commission. A civil engineer and environmental scientist, he has the expertise needed to plan for the future energy needs of Washington's largest public utility district, and he has the vision as well.

When in office, he wants to create a conservation rate structure with lower rates for reduced consumption; provide incentives for homes and businesses to replace baseboard and other heating systems with more efficient ones; offer PUD-backed loans for solar water and solar electric power systems; provide dividends for homes and businesses that produce more energy than they consume; renegotiate remaining high–rate, nine-year energy contracts; and make meeting times more accessible to the public.
