Senate Confirms Bipartisan FERC Nominees

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Senate voted this evening to confirm Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) nominees Allison Clements and Mark Christie. Following is a statement from Gregory Wetstone, President and CEO of the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE):

“We commend the Senate for confirming this highly qualified pair of FERC nominees. For the first time in years, FERC will have a full, bipartisan complement of five commissioners. We look forward to working with Commissioners Clements and Christie to address the significant wholesale energy market and electric transmission challenges facing our nation. With fresh voices from clean energy and state regulatory backgrounds, we hope this reinvigorated, independent FERC will look anew at how to achieve the long overdue regulatory reforms needed to accelerate our energy transition.”
