As the population of the county continues to grow, and as the Jefferson PUD becomes our electrical utility, our community will  be faced with many choices in regards to energy.  Will we be able to enact efficiency measures sufficient to prevent the need for additional energy resources?  If our energy needs grow and exceed our allotment from Bonnevile Power Administration, where will we go to get that energy?  Will we successfully utilize the abundant renewable energy that surrounds us in the form of the sun, wind and water?
As a part of our mission here at Power Trip Energy, we are proud to facilitate public education and discussion of these topics through sponsorship of these Energy Lunches.
