The Daily Energy Insider recently featured Gunster Government Affairs Practice Leader Ron Brisé in an article discussing cost recovery associated with severe weather events and unforeseen emergencies such as the pandemic. Regulators recognize that such events are beyond a utility’s control and that holding them responsible for all costs will only be detrimental to ratepayers.
“That is a challenge when there are unforeseen circumstances and severe weather events,” said Brisé. “The commission has the responsibility to use all the regulatory tools at its disposal to minimize the impact on all parties involved.”
Ronald Brisé leverages a wealth of experience in governmental, legislative, political and business arenas to represent the interests of clients in matters that include appropriations, business development, education, governmental and legislative affairs, public policy, and economic development. He currently serves as chair of Gunster’s Government Affairs & Lobbying practice.
Ronald is an accomplished commissioner, legislative leader and senior executive with more than 20 years of experience in telecom, energy, utilities, government and business.
