- About Us
There are major challenges ahead in the process of planning broadband services and delivering them to a wide audience in San Juan County. The nature of business relationships between OPALCO and other network service providers (such as Rock Island Internet) need careful thought and discussion.

Cartoonist Rob Pudim's view on local news and events are published periodically in the Journal of the San Juan Islands, and periodically on SanJuanJournal.com.
I approve the ongoing projects that OPALCO is undertaking to maintain and improve our grid system. This includes extending the current fiber optic communication network, and adding new automated devices to increase safety, improve efficiency, and integrate additional local generating capacity.

Rural places need workable connectivity even more than do urban areas. The ability to reach the outside world levels the economic playing field and creates jobs. It gives island kids reasons to stay where they were brought up and keep young, fresh ideas here. Lack of connectivity can cripple tourism.
