Washington, D.C. – Christina Nyquist joined the Electric Power Supply Association (EPSA) this week as Director of Communications. In her new role, Christina will help tell the story of how EPSA’s members—America’s competitive power suppliers—are contributing to a secure and sustainable energy future by providing reliable and competitively priced electricity to customers nationwide.
With an extensive background in strategic public policy communication, Christina brings to EPSA over a decade of experience at the national and global level, having contributed to media and public outreach, content creation, digital strategy, and messaging at the U.S. Geological Survey, the American Gas Association, and most recently at The Pew Charitable Trusts.
Todd Snitchler, EPSA President and CEO, said, “EPSA is very pleased that Christina has joined our team. At this critical and dynamic time in U.S. energy policy, EPSA and our members are deeply engaged on important and evolving issues. Having Christina on board will help us put the perspective of competitive power suppliers and our customers front and center—and help ensure that policymakers, stakeholders, and all audiences understand the benefits of competition.”
Christina received a M.A. in media and public affairs from The George Washington University and a B.A. in government and French studies from Smith College in Northampton, MA.
Launched over 20 years ago, EPSA is the national trade association representing leading independent power producers and marketers. EPSA members provide reliable and competitively priced electricity from environmentally responsible facilities using a diverse mix of fuels and technologies. Power supplied on a competitive basis collectively accounts for 40 percent of the U.S. installed generating capacity. EPSA seeks to bring the benefits of competition to all power customers.
