Which candidates support HEA Members Forum objectives?

Let's take a look, starting with District 3 (Clam Gulch, south). We'll look at Districts 1 & 2 soon.

Jim Levine says:

To achieve our goal of stable rates and clean, reliable energy we must eliminate our dependence on fossil fuels.

Jim Levine favors:

• Developing a diversified mix of renewables
• HEA taking a more active role to promote energy conservation
• Establishing policies for openness and transparency.

Jim Levine clearly shares HEAMF concerns and priorities!

Pasted below is a brief message I received from Jim. My apologies if you already received it directly from him.


Hi Everyone,

As some of you are aware, I am running for the Homer Electric Association Board of Directors position. I feel very strongly that HEA should be taking a more in depth look at renewable energy generation systems before getting involved in a coal generation system in Healy. I have put together a website,, that includes a few papers that I have prepared outlining my position regarding electrical power generation, and links to sites that show some of the potential we have for renewable energy systems here in Homer. In preparing for this election I have come to realize that we have so much potential to produce, and conserve, so much energy right here on the Kenai Peninsula. I have also included a site that shows one small portion of the problems that are posed by coal generation systems.

If you would like to be a part of this campaign, please call me at 299-0323, or email me at jlevine(emailAT) I would be glad to talk to you about all the exciting possibilities for the Kenai Peninsula in regards to electrical power generation.

Jim Levine
