Klamath Falls, Ore.– Pacific Power has created a new position in response to the recent controversy regarding the possible creation of a public utility district in the Basin. Longtime Klamath Falls resident Todd Andres starts his new position as regional community manager based out of KFalls. Officials with Pacific Power said the utility heard community complaints and hopes this move will help to build bridges.
Now, the Klamath Energy Advisory Council meets this morning, and is expected to discuss whether to dissolve the organization. The group was formed to pave the way for the a public utility district, with the intention of buying electricity infrastructure from Pacific Power, and having the county provide power to the Basin. Klamath Falls City Council shot down a similar plan earlier this year, and Pacific Power had made clear that it’s facilities are not for sale.
