ALBANY, NY (January 23, 2017) — With today’s news that Audrey Zibelmen will be stepping down form her position as chair of the Public Service Commission (PSC), Anne Reynolds, Executive Director of ACE NY, has the following statement:

"PSC Chair Audrey Zibelman and New York's energy team have made our state a national and global model for the 21st Century energy grid. Her leadership in reforming utility regulation, the promotion of distributed generation and public participation testify to her lasting contribution. Her departure will be a real loss for New York State. But Governor Cuomo has a very strong energy team and vision, and we assume the Administration's sharp focus on modernizing and decarbonizing the grid will continue with Audrey's replacement."
