As Energy Central continues to grow, both in terms of our reach into the network of utility professionals and in the release terrific features and tools that will help benefit members of our community, we want to announce that we've launched a new program to feature and empower a group of volunteers known as Community Ambassadors. 

Our Community Ambassador Program was launched as a tool to help encourage continued growth in a way that is valuable to you and useful to the utility sector as a whole. In starting this program, we've found members of the Energy Central community who are tapped into the industry, committed to moving the needle in this collaborative platform, and were eager to expand their role to help our community continue to prosper. 

In short, these volunteers-- or Community Ambassadors-- will help us by adding more engagement to the community (via comments, questions, and new content), seeking out new members who would make a great addition to our community, and curating valuable content that our existing members shouldn't be missing out on. We're so excited to kick off this program with our first 'class' of Community Ambassadors, who have undergone a training process and are now officially underway in their roles and responsibilities:

For regulars on the Energy Central Community, you've likely already noticed the increased presence of these amazing Community Ambassadors in sharing content, engaging in discussions, and more. And you're likely going to see more of them moving forward.

We thank this first 'class' of Community Ambassadors for helping us kick off this exciting new initiative at Energy Central, and we're sure they're going to make it a success and help the community continue to grow in size and value. If you're interested in learning more about the Community Ambassador program or maybe even want to get involved in a second 'class' of Ambassadors yourself, feel free to leave a comment below or reach out to me at

Matt, Great job of gathering many diverse people with knowledge in many different areas. You are the power in the center that connects us all and encourages comments. I notice you are the first to comment on almost every article on many subjects. You read and summarize with important comments. Great work.
