New PSC Commissioners

January 5th, 2010 by flanews

Two new Public Service Commissioner were sworn in today and a new chairwoman was appointed as the utility watchdog hopes to reshape its image.

Two former commissioners were denied reappointment in October after reports of secret communications between PSC staffers and utility executives began to surface. The secret communications were uncovered as Florida Power and Light asked the commission for a 1.3 billion dollar rate increase. New Chairwoman Nancy Argenziano says its time to revamp the commissions image.

The public felt that the Public Service Commission was not maybe doing a fair job or the perception was bad. There are a lot of good commissioners who served in the past and there are some that maybe shouldnt have served, but what it comes down to is that we now hopefully will move in a direction where the public can regain some trust, said Argenziano.

The shake up in the make up of the five member commission comes just weeks before the vote is due on FPLs rate hike request. The vote is scheduled for January 29th.
