HEA's Eckert named to energy policy task force

Gov. Frank Murkowski has appointed Rick Eckert Jr. of Homer Electric Association and Wayne Carmony of Matanuska Electric Association to the nine-member Alaska Energy Policy Task Force, created by the Legislature this year to help guide Alaska's long-term energy policy.

Eckert is currently interim general manager of Homer Electric Association. He joined the cooperative as controller in 1989 after working in gas accounting and natural gas liquids marketing in his native Colorado. At HEA he has advanced from controller in 1989, to manager of accounting and rates in 1991, to finance manager in 1994, and to manager or finance and business development in 2000.

Carmony has been the general manager of Matanuska Electric Association since 1994. He had previously worked in Kentucky as general manager of the Grayson Rural Electric Cooperative and had earlier been system engineering manager for the East Kentucky Power Cooperative.

The task force was created by House Concurrent Resolution 21, sponsored by Rep. John Harris of Valdez and passed by the Alaska State Legislature in May.

The task force is responsible for reviewing and analyzing the state's current and long-term energy needs. It is to deliver its recommendations for a long-term energy plan for Railbelt Alaska by Dec. 31 and to produce similar recommendations for rural Alaska by March 31, 2004.
