Steve Mitnick is Editor-in-Chief of Public Utilities Fortnightly and President of Lines Up, Inc.
Another day, another Commission. This time, Public Utilities Fortnightly Editor-in-Chief Steve Mitnick, along with PUF Editor Angela Hawkinson - spent a day - two days really - with the Georgia Public Service Commission. It was a real long two days in Atlanta but only because the PSC worked Mitnick and Hawkinson hard, with a record sixteen interviews back to back to back to back, etc. They, and sidekick Bill Edge, the PSC's Public Information Officer, went from room to room it seemed and had conversations with all five Commissioners and an all-time-high twenty-two members of Staff.
Georgia's commission regulates utilities in the nation's eighth most populous state. Among its responsibilities is monitoring the sole nuclear power plant construction project in the U.S., Georgia Power's Vogtle 3 and 4 project.
We start with PSC Chair Lauren McDonald. Everybody knows Chair McDonald as Bubba. Read on and get a taste of those long but great two days in Atlanta.
