At their July 18th meeting in Eastsound, the OPALCO Board of Directors appointed Glenna Hall, of San Juan Island, to fill the vacant seat for District 1 (San Juan, Brown, Henry, Pearl and Speiden islands). The seat was vacated in May when George Mulligan resigned from the Board.

“I’m honored to be appointed to this position,” said Hall. “OPALCO plays a key role in our rural communities and I’m excited to be at the table. I look forward to working on the challenges the Co-op is facing in terms of tiered rates, load management and the expansion of our data communication network—and the opportunity to help steer us into the next chapter for a sustainable energy future.”
