Notable Quotes From the TEC Managers Conference
December 7, 2015
Fifty-two co-op managers converged December 2–4 in San Antonio for the 43rd Annual Texas Electric Cooperatives Managers Conference to discuss issues important to electric cooperatives, including solar power, battery storage and social media. Participants also heard updates from TEC’s president/CEO, their National Rural Electric Cooperative Association board member and a representative from Touchstone Energy Cooperatives. Notable quotes from the conference include:
“What’s the most important issue facing [TEC] members? Because that is my most important issue.”
“I think that solar is going to be a big part of the energy future. It’s a small resource today, but it has an effect much greater than the size of the megawatts that are installed on the grid today.”
Vice President of Knowledge, Solar Electric Power Association
“There is plenty of economic development and community development to go around; it’s just a question of how do we partner to make that happen? If we’re fortunate enough, we look forward to having those discussions with you.”
—Hunter L. Hunt
CEO, Hunt Consolidated
“Training is so important if we’re going to put social media to work for us, or even if we’re going to have employees identifying themselves as employees of our company, we need to provide them with some guidelines.”
Author, Speaker and Strategist, Comply Socially
“You have to know what the technology specifications are to truly and accurately be able to evaluate [battery storage] on a financial basis.”
CEO, Fractal Business Analytics
