We recently said goodbye to George Edgar, who began his well-deserved retirement earlier this month. George was WECC’s Executive Director from 1991 until 1999. Since then, he served as our Policy Director.
George’s strong commitment to environmental equity is evidenced by his continuous work on programs that reach low-income populations. His vision of energy efficiency justice drove the creation of Energy Finance Solutions in 1996. Since then, he continued to be a strong advocate for breaking down energy efficiency barriers and has made remarkable contributions to WECC’s portfolio of limited-income programs.
Other noteworthy achievements include helping to design the original program applications for Focus on Energy, and working with a team of WECC staff to write the Department of Energy’s Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant application.
George’s contributions to WECC and the energy efficiency industry are unmatched. We thank him for his many years of dedicated service, and wish him all the best in this next chapter!
