This past week Mayor Rhonda Riherd Trautman was notified by the Governor’s Office that she was named to Center for Renewable Energy Research and Environmental Stewardship Board by Governor Beshear.  Trautman represents local government.

Mayor Trautman states “I am so proud that the Governor has the confidence in me to serve on this board.  Over the past two and half years of my administration I have worked closely with partners such as Farmers Rural Electric Cooperative (FRECC), East Kentucky Power, the Glasgow Water Company and the Glasgow Electric Plant Board among others to study and develop sustainable energy options for our community. One result of these efforts is the development of our Landfill Methane Recovery and Electrification Program in partnership with FRECC which is well on its way to becoming a reality. This renewable energy project will provide both financial and environmental benefits to our community for generations to come.   I look forward to participating with the Center for Renewable Energy Research and learning how other technologies and partnerships might benefit the City of Glasgow now and in the future.” 
The Center for Renewable Energy Research and Environmental Stewardship Board (CRERES) provides leadership, research, support and policy development in renewable energy; advances the goal of renewable energy; and promotes technologies, practices and programs that increase efficiency in energy utilization in homes, businesses, and public buildings. In addition to representation from local government, the board includes representatives from the Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet, postsecondary education, energy conservation organizations, private industry, the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development and the Kentucky Science and Technology Corporation.
