Simplifying Energy

The energy industry is complex and often confusing to a non-energy professional.  Attempts to find understandable, clear information that is not full of “industry speak” often leaves consumers frustrated and at times distrusting of their energy company and its regulators. It is my goal to provide relevant, interesting information about the energy industry that will enlighten, educate and at times entertain. I welcome your feedback as well as suggestions on content that will help to simplify the energy industry.  

All my best,  Commissioner Scott Rupp
