Go green on Holy Cross board

My wife and I have started tossing the idea around of buying a new car.

The problem is whatever we buy will likely be a hand-me-down to my oldest son, and I can’t bear the thought of handing down a car to him that doesn’t get at least 50 mpg.

We could buy the average car today, and my son in the year 2019 would be driving a car that is less efficient than the first Ford Model T build nearly 100 years earlier.

The same applies to producing electricity. If we as a society are going to invest in electricity production, it makes no sense to make a 50-year investment in technology that is 50 years old, such as coal-fired power.

Holy Cross Energy has made good progress in encouraging energy efficiency with their customers, and the next step is investing in clean energy generation.

Marshall Foote and Adam Palmer are running for the Holy Cross Board and are both committed to investing in clean energy as an investment for future generations.

If you’re a Holy Cross customer you likely just received a ballot in the mail.

Please vote for Marshall Foote and Adam Palmer for the Holy Cross Energy Board of Directors.
