Susan Parker, who is in her first term as a member of the Alabama Public Service Commission, recently was elected president of the Southeastern Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (SEARUC) at the association’s annual meeting. SEARUC members are utility regulators from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas. Commissioner Parker had this to say about her election:
As the Southeastern region president, I will be working hard with my fellow commissioners and with Congress to find the proper balance on issues such as climate legislation. We must fight to protect the Southeastern economy and keep our utility rates down as we address environmental concerns.
The Alabama commissioner’s one-year term as SEARUC president begins immediately. Elected to the state PSC in 2006, Susan also holds leadership positions in the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners. Mirroring her efforts in Alabama, Susan says she will use her role as SEARUC president to focus greater attention on the importance of energy efficiency. Susan’s Consumer Education Initiative in Alabama, launched in March 2008, provides information on efficiency and conservation to low-income utility customers and senior citizens throughout the state. Her Bill of Rights for consumers is available and can be obtained by contacting Susan at the PSC. Susan is a dedicated public servant and is doing an outstanding job for Alabama citizens on the PSC.
