Greg Wiggins

District 1

Greg was elected to the Gunnison County Electric Association (GCEA) Board in 2011. He currently serves as secretary/treasurer and previously served as president, vice president, and assistant secretary/treasurer.

After graduating from the University of Montana with a BA in Business, Greg moved to Crested Butte to teach skiing. He started a property management business a few years later and has been a small business owner since 1983. He has been involved in Skyland Metropolitan and East River Sanitation Districts since 1988 and is currently chairman of both. He is also the president of two local homeowner association boards. Greg is involved with the town of Crested Butte and their Climate Action Plan, has promoted community solar in Crested Butte, pushed for more use of Green Power, has been involved in many discussion on how to bring larger solar to Gunnison valley, and is an advocate to get Taylor Hydro installed and operating. This can all be done keeping fair and stable electric rates. There is still much to do.
