“What can we do to encourage the next right thing?” Duff Mitchell, Managing Director of Juneau Hydropower, recently asked. “Transforming to renewable energy we know is the right thing. Instead of giving that responsibility to someone else, let’s do it ourselves.”

Read the next Juneau Empire installment in local writer and historian Anjuli Grantham’s terrific series, “Juneau’s Climate Change Solutionists.” In this ‘episode’, Anjuli spends time with one of Juneau’s leading renewable energy visionaries and advocates, Duff Mitchell. Duff is managing director of Juneau Hydropower, Inc, a founder of the Juneau Electric Vehicle Association, and a former Juneau Commission on Sustainability member and chairman…just to quickly rattle off a few of the varied feathers in his cap.
Many that know Duff stand in awe of his drive, his energy, his commitment to Juneau and the climate crisis, and his positive approach to what can be very daunting issues. Maybe someday he’ll share his secrets with us! Daily yoga? Strong Sentinel coffee? A hush hush backcountry ski habit??
