City energy chief stepping down

Posted By on Tue, Jan 5, 2010 at 7:00 PM

Tom Black, Colorado Springs Utilities energy services officer, is retiring. Black has been with the city for more than two decades.

Utilities spokesman Dave Grossman says chief water officer Bruce McCormick will temporarily fill Black’s shoes while a national search is conducted for Black’s replacement.

Black has been with Utilities for 23 years, coming here after working for Progress Energy in Raleigh, N.C., as director of distribution contracts. At Utilities, he is responsible for energy supply, including power plants, and natural gas and electric distribution to roughly 200,000 customers. He helped integrate the energy services division and develop certification programs for system controllers and field operations.

He’s served on the Colorado Association of Municipal Utilities board and served as a committee member for the Rocky Mountain Electric League and the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers. Black’s retirement is effective Jan. 31.
