During his life in Durango, Bill Waters has seen many changes.
Among them is the need for clean, renewable and affordable energy. Bill is a hard-working, dedicated businessman who understands how million-dollar businesses operate. He is committed to work for you as he has for Wagner Equipment for 37 years. (Not a sick day in all those years!)
He understands the nature of LPEA in that it is a distributor of electricity it purchases. In other words, LPEA is not a generator of that electricity. The business model is for LPEA to purchase power (and it certainly can be from renewable resources) and get it to you, all the community members. LPEA has a contract with Tri-State (which is an electricity generation company) that ends in 2050. Bill understands that because of this contract, LPEA can purchase only up to 5 percent of electricity locally from its members. He will work to maximize that percentage, as well as work to reduce Tri-State’s reliance on coal.
We all want clean air. He is committed to the community to provide clean, renewable and affordable energy to all, especially those on fixed incomes and those with financial burdens – and unfortunately, there are many in our community. Bill has no agenda or special interests, just the desire to work hard for LPEA, its members and its employees. He understands the importance of keeping and building good morale to keep a company strong.
A vote for him is a vote for a man with common sense! As stated, he understands Durango as well as the need for clean, renewable and affordable energy. Bill will work with the other LPEA board members to provide this. Please vote for him in the LPEA election.
