Citizens Advisory Committees
Emerald's Board Makes Decisions With YOUR Help!
One of the great things about public power is YOUR involvement in it. At Emerald, we invite Customer-Owners to serve on Citizens Advisory Committees (CACs). These committees advise the Board when key decisions need to be made. We have three standing CACs, on resource planning, finance, and rates. Since 1983, when EPUD began,Customer-Owners have grappled with the complex issues involved in making important decisions.
The Three Committees
- Finance: The Finance CAC meets every year, in the fall, to review Emerald's operating budget. This committee consists of seven Customer-Owners. They study utility expenditures and revenues and review financial activities.
- Rates: This CAC studies and reviews the schedules of prices, fees and charges. The committee consists of 15 Customer-Owners.
- Resource Planning: This CAC consists of nine Customer-Owners. They study and evaluate the planning of energy resources.
If you are interested in joining on of our Citizen Advisory Committees, contact the Board member in your area and express your interest directly to them. They can nominate to appoint you if a position needs to be filled. Visit our Board of Directors page HERE to contact your board Representative.
