PUF's Steve Mitnick: What's your job at Avista?
Linda Gervais: I am senior manager of regulatory policy and strategy. I do regulatory policy.
A typical day here, I oversee our regulatory compliance, making sure that we're balancing all of the different kinds of filings whether it be a rate or a policy-initiated kind of filing like DSM, energy efficiency. In this position, you have to know a little about a lot.
And balancing that among Washington, Idaho, and Oregon. So, electric and natural gas. I oversee all of those states. We also have thirty-two customers in Montana. And we serve electricity in Juneau, Alaska.
