Clean Water Action Board of Directors

Portland, CT

Andy Bauer became a life-long fan of Clean Water Action when he became an activist in CT's 1998-2002 Campaign to Clean up the “Sooty Six” power plants.  In 2005 he founded and continues to Chair the Portland Clean Energy Task Force. He believes that aggressively deploying clean energy and energy efficiency technologies can blunt the threat that climate change presents to future generations.  Andy has spent thousands of hours promoting programs that help people reap the multiple benefits that clean & efficient energy options deliver.  In 2014 he was honored by his hometown with a Ralph Paley ‘Spirit of Portland’ award for volunteerism.  When not saving the planet, he relaxes by taking long walks with his wife Joanna, kayaking, producing public service videos, glissading, farming, and teaching Middle School.
