A diverse group navigating a dynamic time of change
Steve Mitnick is Editor-in-Chief of Public Utilities Fortnightly and author of the book “Lines Down: How We Pay, Use, Value Grid Electricity Amid the Storm.”
Public utility commissions around the country must identify collaborative strategies to meet complex challenges in a rapidly changing regulatory landscape. The Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC) is a diverse group of people navigating a dynamic time of change as Illinois builds its energy future.
Illinois is in the enviable position of having a strong foundation on which to build. In addition to the state's diverse set of power generation sources that provide a reliable energy supply, Illinois is the nation's top producer of nuclear energy, has the second-largest proven coal reserves, and the sixth largest installed wind capacity in the United States.
