Hawaii lawmakers last week confirmed the nomination of Jennifer “Jennie” Potter to serve on the Hawaii Public Utilities Commission.
State Senators confirmed Potter's nomination in a unanimous decision, voting 24-0, on Monday.
“Jennifer has a solid background and extensive experience that will enable her to serve well on the Public Utilities Commission. I look forward to working with her to achieve a 100 percent clean energy future,” Ige said in a statement on March 19.
Potter, who worked as a senior scientific engineering associate in the electricity market and policy group at Lawrence Berkley National Lab prior to joining HNEI, will begin her six-year term on July 1.
