City Commission Appoints New TCL&P Board Member
(Traverse City, Michigan) — The Traverse City City Commission appointed Paul Heiberger to serve on the Traverse City Light & Power (TCL&P) Board at its August 6, 2018 meeting. Mr. Heiberger is filling the remaining term of Jan Geht expiring April 1, 2019 due to Mr. Geht’s resignation, and a subsequent five-year term expiring April 1, 2024.
“As a bit of an energy nerd, the utility's board is a natural fit for my interests and professional background.” said Paul Heiberger. “Traverse City Light & Power also has a lot of great things going on! The fiber network development, the recent availability of the new green rate, investments in improvements to substations and transmission - I am thrilled to be a more active participant in those efforts and to join the board at such an exciting time.”
Mr. Heiberger has a M.S. Degree in Sustainable Development from the University of Wisconsin Madison and a B.S. Degree in Ecology from the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana. He currently works as an Energy Advisor for Franklin Energy in Traverse City and has been a resident since 2016.
Traverse City Light & Power (www.tclp.org) is a community-owned, community-focused municipal utility that offers reliable energy at low rates in the region to over 12,700 customers in Traverse City, and parts of East Bay, Elmwood, Garfield, and Peninsula townships.
