Reid Statement On Departure Of Jon Wellinghoff As FERC Chairman

Reno, NV – “Eight years ago, I recommended Jon Wellinghoff for a position on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).  He has served with great distinction as a Commissioner and later as its Chairman.  As one of the nation’s great minds on energy policy, Jon is leaving a legacy at FERC that will enhance energy efficiency, promote renewable energy, and improve the resiliency of the nation’s electricity grid.  Jon’s efforts to support a cleaner and more secure energy future will be a tremendous benefit for Nevada and our nation for years to come.”
