Director District 7
Board Position: Director District 7
Douglas Kadjar Town: Kyle
As a PEC member, Doug believes the coop should return to the mission statement which emphasized reliable power
“at the lowest possible cost”. To bring that about, more competition by wholesale generators must be encouraged.
Renewable power can be a part of this mix, but must stand on its own competitively. PEC has little experience generating
electricity, having traditionally been a retail distributor of power. Solar technology is rapidly advancing and dropping in
price; it would be unwise to invest in equipment that could soon be obsolete. The competitive market is more efficient
than central planning, as proven by the number of federally guaranteed loans defaulted on by solar companies in recent
years. Diversity of generation sources is key to reliability as well as affordability, as fuel/generation costs rise and fall
over time.
A native Texan, Doug has called Hays County home since 1989. He served 6 years (2000-2006) on the Hays County
Appraisal Review Board, the last two as chairman. He has served in various school and church organizations (PTA,
booster organizations, budget and personnel committees) and was a mentor for 3 years at Kyle Elementary. He, his wife
Brenna, and four kids call Kyle home, where they enjoy camping, water sports, and church activities.
