VPPSA General Manager joins Consumer Federation of America Board of Directors
Waterbury Center, VT – Ken Nolan, General Manager of the Vermont Public Power Supply Authority, has been elected to the Consumer Federation of America Board of Directors. Nolan will serve a one-year term as one of three public power representatives on the 35-member board.
CFA is an association of non-profit organizations that advocates on behalf of consumers through research, policy development and education. VPPSA joined CFA in March 2019 in effort to advance Vermont energy consumers’ interests.
“I am very excited to work with the other CFA board members to promote policies that protect consumers and strengthen communities,” said Nolan, who has over 30 years of experience in the electric utility industry. “My goal is to amplify VPPSA’s voice and advocate for national energy policy solutions that will improve the lives of Vermonters right here at home.”
Nolan brings an extensive knowledge of energy resource planning and management to CFA’s board. He was nominated to the board by the American Public Power Authority.
“We are thrilled that Ken Nolan has joined CFA’s board,” said CFA Executive Director Jack Gillis. “Public power utilities represent a critical consumer resource, and we have been working together for a half-century on ensuring that consumers have access to safe, affordable energy. Counting Vermont Public Power Supply Authority among CFA’s diverse membership strengthens our efforts to protect consumers throughout the nation.”
Nolan serves on several boards locally and nationally, including the Vermont Electric Power Company, Vermont Electric Power Producers Inc., and Hometown Connections, Inc.
