Amy Lea SJ Akers seeks to serve the members of PEC as Director of District 7

The seven directors of Pedernales Electric Cooperative, a member only cooperative, are responsible for the largest electric coop in the nation covering over eight-thousand square miles and serving over 300,000 accounts. With single member districts each district is equally represented on the board. District 7 encompasses parts of Travis, Hays and Caldwell counties.

An attorney by trade she believes in doing the right thing and standing up for what you believe in. Dedicated to the community Amy pledges to zealously represent all the member interests of PEC.

As a lifelong resident of the Texas hill country and PEC Amy Akers will carry an allegiance for balance between the sustainability and affordability of our energy resources. Raising three children Amy is not only thinking about tomorrow she is thinking about the future for all our children. Understanding demand will ultimately increase, Amy will work hard and fight now to anticipate the growth of the future in an effort to keep costs affordable for generations.

Professionally trained in business transactions and renewable energy law Amy believes in a balance between the environment and human needs. She says “if we do not anticipate the affects or plan our natural resource consumption we are not protecting our future.” Her knowledge of the industry and professional training will be an asset to the coop and its members.

Establishing and maintaining effective working relationships with officials, organizations and the general public she gained experience in public speaking on various matters including controversial subjects such as budgeting, utilities, taxes and the environment. Ensuring and striking a balance for reliable, sustainable, renewable and affordable energy PEC members should feel confident their interests will be protected should Amy Lea SJ Akers be elected to represent them.
