The Senate has voted to confirm three nominees, Judy Chang, David Rosner and Lindsay See, to serve as Commissioners on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. These Commissioners will fill two empty seats on FERC and replace Commissioner Allison Clements once her term expires at the end of June. 

“FERC plays a critical role in shaping the power grid that our homes, businesses and communities depend on. Decisions made by the Commission can determine how we expand and strengthen the grid to keep the lights on amid more frequent storms and heat waves, unlock more clean energy that curbs pollution and lower energy bills for ratepayers. 

“Having a full complement of five Commissioners will allow FERC to keep advancing the vital work needed to deliver reliable, affordable and clean power to everyone around the country. We’re pleased to see the Senate act quickly to return FERC to full strength.” 

- Ted Kelly, EDF Director of U.S. Clean Energy
