  • EWEB programs make electric mobility more accessible

    Electric mobility seems to be everywhere these days, but does availability equal accessibility? Here at EWEB we’ve determined that the answer is ‘no’ and are working to bridge that gap through EV car shares, community grants and electric bike rebates.

  • Lead Green annual summary

    In Eugene, we take pride in knowing we have one of the cleanest power portfolios in the nation. Roughly 90% of Eugene's power comes from carbon-free hydroelectric energy. And EWEB has a long history offering robust conversation programs. But we wanted to do more, so we launched Lead Green, a suite of programs for climate innovators looking to support renewable energy and take action on climate change. In the year since Lead Green was launched, we've accomplished a lot we can be proud of.

"My girlfriends joke about how much I talk about work," says Megan. "We were all at a little gathering the other day and one of them said, 'I can tell by the volume - Megan's talking about work!' I get so animated.

That she does. We should all be so lucky to find a career that after 30 years still brings a sparkle to our eye, like power planning does for Megan.

"I grew up in public power," says Megan. "Out of college I started with BPA (Bonneville Power Administration) as an economist and became passionate about public power, the federal hydropower system, and the customer-driven nature of the business."

Over her career, Megan has seen a lot of change in the industry-from the height of energy efficiency and conservation, to deregulation, to the energy crisis of 2000/2001-all of which helped set her up perfectly for her current position as the supervisor of the power planning team.

"I started with EWEB in power risk as project manager implementing a new system for energy trading and commodity risk management. From there I moved into a regional role, working with BPA to represent the interests of EWEB's customers. Everything I have done in my career has set me up for the job I have now," says Megan.

The job she has now, leading the utility in energy supply planning, is full of challenge and hard work. "And I love it," says Megan.

"We're being asked to look into the future, and take into account all of the possible changes in supply and demand, technology, legislation, and markets, and determine what our customers will need," explains Megan.

Recently Megan and her team have started popping up at staff meetings around the utility, talking to different work groups about the planning process.

"It's been amazing to see how many people care, even when it's pretty removed from their work," she says. "Great people will make this an organizational and community success."

What Megan might not realize, is it could be that animated nature of hers that pulls people in and makes them realize it's something to care about.

Thank you Megan for your role in providing customers with vital services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
