Vote Bertuglia and Palmer in Holy Cross election

As a local architect who also does work in surrounding communities, I have been very impressed with how much of a leader Holy Cross Energy is as compared to other electric utilities in terms of saving energy, reducing green house gasses and promoting renewable energy, while still providing reliable cost effective electricity.

Please take a moment to vote in this important election, where there are three open board seats to ensure that the future board of directors continues the excellent work that Holy Cross Energy has achieved.

If you care about saving energy, reducing green house gasses and promoting renewable energy like myself, I suggest that you place your vote for Kristen Bertuglia as well as Adam Palmer for the two Northern District seats (Gypsum to Vail).

Adam is an incumbent and has served on the Holy Cross board for the past three years in which he's helped increase renewable energy supply to meet and exceed a voluntary goal of 15 percent by 2015, and develop and launch Holy Cross' energy efficiency plan. In the future, he plans to expand our renewable energy portfolio which includes solar, wind, hydro, and soon coal mine methane and biomass from Gypsum utilizing wood waste and beetle kill pine.

Kristen will use her experience as sustainability coordinator for the town of Vail and manager of the town's recent $3.2 million energy efficiency overhaul to continue to establish Holy Cross as a leader in energy efficiency, clean power and innovative programs. She is experienced in commercial and residential energy efficiency and biomass, and will ensure long-term price stability and smart investment in renewable energy.
