Brent Watkins -  1st Vice Chair

Kodiak Island has been my home and workplace for the past 30 years. I have been involved in local government on Kodiak, with over 10 years of experience in leadership positions. Special interests that I am involved with include habitat and water-shed work with the Alaska Center and The Climate Caucus. Renewable, sustainable energy is a necessity for Alaska.
Kodiak is the example looked at not only in the State of Alaska, but in the country for our success with alternative energy.  I’m proud to have been a part of the planning process for the wind turbines, a goal that was reached ahead of time, with the success of the island now operating 99.8% renewable-powered by wind and hydro. My understanding of renewable energy can make more communities of all sizes sustainable.
