JodyDunklee photoAs a seventh generation Vermonter, and an engineer with 18+ years of professional experience, I believe I am uniquely qualified to serve on the VEC Board of Directors. I have deep appreciation for our rural communities, our natural resources, and the practical background to understand the utility systems.

As board member, it would be my goal to support utility framework that will be robust into the future of changing technology landscapes.  I would advocate for renewable energy where it makes sense, support rural economic development, and partner with other organizations to leverage their programs, share knowledge, and encourage community participation.

Sustainable and reliable energy distribution is a complex issue.  It starts with natural resources (where does the energy come from), but quickly gets entangled in social, political, regulatory, economic, and implementation challenges.  It is not just an issue for me, my family, and my community; it’s an issue for future generations.  This is a precarious, but exciting time in the evolution of energy utilization. Being part of a community the counts on it, I am inspired to learn more, and to contribute to a sustainable future to the best of my ability.
