Bonneville Power Names Drummond As Deputy Administrator, Number Two Position
Posted on Friday, August 26, 2011 (PST)

Bill Drummond, long a major figure in the Northwest power industry, will become deputy Bonneville Power Administration administrator, the No. 2 position at the Northwest’s federal power marketing agency, by Nov. 1. Drummond now manages the Western Montana Electric Generating and Transmission Cooperative in Missoula, Mont.

 

“Bill will be a tremendous asset to the region in his new role at BPA,” said BPA Administrator Steve Wright. “He has a huge breadth and depth of understanding across all BPA issues -- from power and transmission to fish and wildlife, wind and energy efficiency. I look forward to welcoming him on board.”

 

“I’m thrilled at the opportunity to come to BPA and work with so many fine people,” Drummond said. “It’s an exciting time to be joining the Bonneville staff and helping to address the many issues facing the agency.”

 

Western Montana G&T secures wholesale power supplies for five Montana rural electric cooperatives and one tribal utility that together serve more than 100,000 consumers.

 

Drummond serves on many regional task forces and committees on Northwest power issues. Since 2001, he has served on the board of the Bonneville Environmental Foundation, which supports renewable resource development through innovative green power products. Since 2009, he has been on the board of the nonprofit Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance. He is a member of the regional Northwest Wind Integration Forum policy steering committee and of the Northwest Energy Efficiency Task Force, both co-sponsored by BPA and the Northwest Power and Conservation Council.

 

From 1988-94, Drummond led the Public Power Council, an association of Northwest publicly owned utilities. Drummond has served on national committees of the American Public Power Association and the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association.

 

Drummond has degrees in forestry from the University of Montana and economics from the University of Arizona.
