Large Public Power Council
Jackie Sargent, GM at Austin Energy, is the new chair of the Large Public Power Council.
Tom Falcone, CEO of the Long Island Power Authority, is the new co-chair of the Large Public Power Council.
John Di Stasio is president of the Large Public Power Council.
The Large Public Power Council's members provide energy to about ten percent of the nation's population. That is huge, so PUF was paying attention when Jackie Sargent, General Manager of Austin Energy, and Tom Falcone, CEO of the Long Island Power Authority, recently were elected as the organization's chair and vice-chair, respectively.
PUF wanted to know what the new leadership has in mind for an organization comprised of twenty-seven of the nation's largest public power systems. After all, the industry is undergoing transformational change on all levels.
PUF sat down with the new chair and vice-chair to learn what the future holds. As a bonus, LPPC president, John Di Stasio, was there too.
PUF's Steve Mitnick: How did this get started?
John Di Stasio: The Large Public Power Council is an organization of twenty-seven of the largest public power systems in the U.S. plus Puerto Rico. We've been in existence since 1987.
