Conservation Colorado Reaction to Public Utilities Commission Appointments

Governor John Hickenlooper this afternoon announced the appointments of Jeff Ackermann and Wendy Moser to the Public Utilities Commission. In response, Pete Maysmith, Executive Director of Conservation Colorado, made the following statement:

Governor Hickenlooper has made two strong choices with these picks. We look forward to working with the Public Utilities Commission to support more clean, renewable energy that will create jobs and cause far fewer emissions and less pollution while keeping rates affordable. Under their leadership, along with Commissioner Frances Koncilja, Colorado can continue to chart its own path towards a clean energy future, no matter what happens in Washington, D.C.
