Bill Midcap is a recovering farmer and rancher who was born and raised north of Fort Morgan, Colorado. After High School and a short stint at Colorado State University, Bill owned and operated the farm he grew up on for many years. On the farm, Bill raised seed wheat, corn, alfalfa, and onions. He has often said the best thing he raised on this farm are his two children, Nate and Erin. Nate is still raising cattle north of Wray, Colorado, which makes him the 5th generation to raise beef cattle in Colorado.
While farming, Bill became interested in energy issues when elected to serve as a director of Morgan County Rural Electric Association in 1990. Bill became very involved with rural electrics and served on the executive committee and was elected president of Colorado Rural Electric Association, the state-wide trade association of Colorado’s rural electrics. Bill has served as a board member to Tri-State Generation & Transmission Association. He also served as an executive member of the board of Mid-West Electric Consumers Association and was elected president of the board in 2015. Mid-West is a regional coalition of consumer-owned utilities, REAs, public power districts, and municipal electric utilities. They purchase hydropower generated at federal multi-purpose projects in the Missouri River basin. Midcap enjoys working with individuals, community groups, and utilities to encourage development of local renewable energy projects, to determine barriers and solutions for project development, and to conduct rural business development. He fosters outreach to rural groups and develops business models to support clean energy development and energy efficiency.
Bill joined Rocky Mountain Farmers Union in 2008 and was hired as a renewable energy associate. He was promoted to the Director of External Affairs where his duties were numerous but mostly entailed the legislative duties that the organization deemed concerning.
Bill enjoys fishing, golf, gardening, and just being outdoors. He also loves being with his family especially his four grandchildren.
