City of DL has new energy specialist

Bridget Penton

Bridget Penton is the new energy specialist at the City of Detroit Lakes Public Utility.

Penton has two undergraduate degrees and a Master's Degree in aeronautical science from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. She also has over three years of experience working for the City of Phoenix Aviation Department.

"I came from a very innovative and forward-thinking industry, very similar to energy conservation," said Penton, adding that she is looking for new ways to relay one message: "The more avenues we can pursue, the greater audience we will reach."

She says her goal is to bring new ways of delivering that messages, such as the "great rebate system," to the City of Detroit Lakes.
