WASHINGTON, D.C. – The new head of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) can advance competitive market-based solutions to provide cleaner, reliable and affordable electricity, said the head of the Electric Power Supply Association (EPSA) following President Biden’s appointment of Richard Glick as FERC Chair. EPSA President and CEO Todd Snitchler released the following statement congratulating Chairman Glick:
“EPSA congratulates Chairman Glick as he takes on his new leadership role at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. Upholding FERC’s mission to protect the integrity of competitive energy markets and ensure just and reasonable rates is critical to keeping electricity affordable and reliable for all Americans as our power grid evolves.
With no shortage of thorny questions to tackle over the past few years, we have enjoyed a productive relationship with now-Chairman Glick and we look forward to continuing the conversation along with all of the FERC Commissioners.
EPSA will continue to provide market-based solutions that allow all resources to compete to reduce emissions at the least cost without undermining reliability. The challenges we face are not insurmountable and we are ready to get to work with Chairman Glick and FERC to advance sound energy solutions.”
