The PSC is the agency that regulates our utilities that create the energy that power our lives every day. Dawn will be diligent in seeking answers to reliable and safe energy infrastructure to protectour air, water, land, wildlife and people. Dawn will seek input from local communities by holding meetings at their convenience. Dawn will request plans and proof that our utility production and delivery system is safe from computer high-jacking by ensuring tough standards of cyber security. Dawn will put the consumer at the center of every decision.
Dawn’s sole purpose for running for the PSC is to put the Public on the Public Service Commission. Dawn is not taking campaign contributions from utility executives. Dawn has a track record for working in the sunshine and making sure all sides are at the same table working together for a win-win conclusion. Dawn will examine each rate case brought before the PSC to consider the impact on the residential and business owner to evaluate economic impact each decision will place on the consumer. Dawn knows what it is like to balance turning up or down the thermostat when you are worried about paying the bill. Dawn will advocate for low rates!
Georgia should take the lead in renewable energy capacity. We must ensure the rebates and incentives for solar are well known to all consumers. Solar installation costs have fallen significantly in the past decade and the industry is approaching a $1 billion economic impact in Georgia. Yet, we have fallen behind on efforts to decrease carbon emissions and increase clean energy resource development. Dawn will stay on top of emerging technologies, encourage investments and reduce regulatory barriers. We have a great opportunity to advance the infrastructure for fast and reliable internet access, electrical vehicle drivers, and cutting-edge business enterprises. Dawn loves science and will pursue every avenue available when serving on the PSC to ensure renewable energy and emerging technologies can grow and thrive.
