April Montgomery Elected As SEWC Board Chair

By Staff Reports, posted Jan 24, 2017
The Southeastern Wind Coalition’s (SEWC) board of directors has unanimously elected April Montgomery as board chair for 2017. She is new to the board, being elected as a representative of the full and associate members last year.
Montgomery has worked in the fields of renewable energy, historic preservation, environmental permitting and local government planning for more than 15 years, according to a news release. As a project manager, development consultant and regulatory specialist, she has experience navigating the boundaries between the public and private sectors. Her experience in these fields and community investment projects are what led her to establish REAP, a development services consulting firm focused on renewable energy and historic preservation.
Montgomery is a member of the advisory council of the N.C. Clean Energy Technology Center and has worked to educate the public on issues related to clean air and water through her service on the Sanford/Lee County Environmental Advisory Board. 
“April’s experience, knowledge, and passion for renewable energy growth will be a tremendous asset for SEWC as we move into 2017. We were fortunate enough to have her join our Board of Directors in 2016 and I look forward to working more closely with her as we continue to grow and advance wind in the region,” said Katharine Kollins, president of the Southeastern Wind Coalition, in the release.
