A public thank you to Grant PUD, Microsoft

Print Article

Here I am checking my mail from The White House, Dept. of Ecology on behalf of the Governor’s Office, and a sweet thank you for volunteering for the Presbyterian Church’s VBS, when I realized I haven’t sent a public thank you to the PUD and Microsoft for their contributions to Grant County needs.

With sincere gratitude and appreciation, I would like to publicly give thanks to the PUD and Microsoft for their recent $480,000 donation from the energy conservation rebate. Thank you PUD for evolving the “Pay It Forward” program from Initiative 937 and working with eligible clients to generate and produce monetary rebates. Thank you Microsoft for your leadership and generosity to defer taking the rebate and instead donate the money to the “Pay It Forward” program, which is designed to specifically benefit Grant County residents.

I would also like to say thank you to everyone who was at the PUD meeting on June 11, 2019; because it was nice to be treated with kindness, smiles, laughter, jokes and thanks. I am excited for the progress our PUD has been committed to ensuring and are exhibiting. I appreciate the professionalism and fun. I am looking forward to working with and giving suggestions to the PUD on where community needs are noticed for future rebates. It is nice to be in an environment where my opinion is valued and everyone is kind.

It is my hope that any company, business or person who is working with the PUD to save energy and are eligible for rebates will follow suit with Microsoft and defer taking the rebate and donate the money to the “Pay It Forward” program. One, because energy saving is good for our world. And two, because having the means to defer rebates to community needs is so super nice and cool. Please and thank you.
