Earlier of the week starting 8 May, the White House announced two nominations to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC): Neil Chatterjee and Rob Powelson.

The American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity (ACCCE) praised the decision to nominate these candidates.

“We commend the Trump Administration for taking a critical step to fill two vacancies at FERC, and we look forward to their timely confirmation.  FERC desperately needs a quorum so it can tackle a number of significant problems in the electricity markets,” said President and CEO of ACCCE, Paul Bailey.

“Chatterjee and Powelson are well-qualified nominees. Commissioner Powelson has served with distinction on the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission and as president of NARUC.  Neil Chatterjee is a thoughtful, experienced, and highly regarded energy advisor to the Senate Majority Leader,” said Bailey.  “Both candidates will bring needed strengths to FERC.”
