Alex Love has taken a position in the Northwest Territories

Alex Love is leaving his job at the City of Nelson after 12 years as the general manager of Nelson Hydro, according to a news release from the city.

“Mayor and council offer their gratitude to Mr. Love for his hard work and many achievements,” the news release states. “Alex played a critical role in modernizing Nelson Hydro’s infrastructure and moving forward important energy-saving initiatives such as the EcoSave program.”

Love will be moving to a power management position in the Northwest Territories.

“I would like to thank Alex for bringing that entrepreneurial spirit to Nelson Hydro,” said city manager Kevin Cormack, “and continuing to look for new innovative opportunities. I wish him best of luck in his new role. We will miss him.”

The news release lists highlights of Love’s achievements with the city including the geothermal heating system for the Tenth Street campus of Selkirk College, reducing the greenhouse gas emissions of the city by 24 per cent, various voltage conversions and substation upgrades, power plant upgrades, the EcoSave program, and the community solar garden.

“The greatest enjoyment I got from Nelson Hydro was working with teams to implement projects and programs,” Love said. “Everyone, from the trades who built the project, project managers who designed the project, through to council who provided the strategic support, was a pleasure to work with.”
