Statement From Gregory Wetstone, President and CEO of the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE):
“We commend Chairman Glick for being an exceptionally effective and visionary leader of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). His commitment, collegiality, and willingness to tackle the regulatory barriers facing the transition to a 21st century grid have been critically important. Chairman Glick’s departure will create a 2-2 split at FERC, leaving the commission divided and potentially stalling progress on critical transmission policy that is key to realizing the immense potential for investment and renewable deployment under the Inflation Reduction Act. We respectfully urge the President to quickly nominate a worthy successor and call on the Senate for rapid confirmation to restore a full complement of five FERC commissioners.”
For more than 20 years, the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE) has been the nation’s premier pan-renewable nonprofit organization. ACORE unites finance, policy and technology to accelerate the transition to a renewable energy economy. For more information, please visit www.acore.org.
