Fifteen unique conversations
How the commission serves the public interest of Floridians through utility regulation.
“Our governor says there’s no reason why every single CEO wouldn’t want to bring his headquarters here to Florida.”
“Customers want immediate restoration regardless of the magnitude of the storm.”
“Florida continues to be a leader by taking the right steps, cautiously, pragmatically, to balance consumer needs and costs with high growth, energy demand, fuel diversity.”
“With the storms in our state, Floridians have high expectations there will be electricity even during bad weather.”
“You can see almost immediately the longevity, tenure, commitment of people who have been here not just for a few years, but many years.”
Executive & Deputy Executive Directors
“We want to recruit people that are here for the long haul, who can easily adapt and not have such a large learning curve, if that’s possible.”
General Counsel, Deputy General Counsel
“Almost every week there’s a new issue that this commission hasn’t dealt with in many years, or it may be a unique issue or case of first impression.”
Division and Office Directors
“Return on equity is an important issue. For an electric case, we might have four or five ROE witnesses.”
