Co-op Leader Appointed to DOE Advisory Group

Louis Finkel

Louis Finkel, senior vice president of government relations for the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, was appointed to the Department of Energy’s Electricity Advisory Committee by Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm in September.

The committee “will provide significant value to the DOE in helping define a strategy on long-range planning and priorities for the modernization of the nation’s electricity delivery infrastructure,” Granholm said.

Electric co-ops will have a part in defining that strategy through Finkel and NRECA. NRECA is the national trade association for 900 electric distribution and transmission cooperatives across the country.
