PORTLAND, Ore. – July 23, 2018 - The Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA), a non-profit alliance of utilities and energy efficiency organizations working to accelerate energy efficiency in the Northwest, announced that Scott Coe has been appointed to its Board of Directors.
Coe is the General Manager of Emerald People’s Utility District (Emerald PUD), a customer-owned electric utility serving 550 square miles in Lane County, Oregon. He joined Emerald PUD in 2012, after a 24-year career at the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA). During his tenure with BPA, Coe was a key player in successfully carrying out new initiatives and implementing processes that support BPA’s strategic direction. He held several management roles there, including overseeing the Western Area Power Account Executives and both Generation Supply and Power Scheduling. Coe received his MBA from Willamette University, with an added emphasis on public administration.
“We feel very fortunate to have Scott serve on our Board of Directors,” said NEEA’s Executive Director, Susan E. Stratton. “His exemplary record of public power and service to the Northwest will bring a valuable perspective to helping guide our alliance.”
NEEA's 20-member board consists of representatives from the Bonneville Power Administration, consumer- and investor-owned utilities and public interest and regional efficiency organizations. The board also includes a governor-appointed representative from each of the four Northwest states. It holds quarterly meetings, which are open to the public.
