Surrounded by friends and family, today at 10 a.m., John Noel officially qualified as a 2018 candidate for the Georgia Public Service Commission.
“It’s fitting on a sunny day to file my candidacy, bringing sunshine to the backwater of the Public Service Commission (PSC). The PSC is part of a crooked and rigged system, whose Republican commissioners cozy up with the utility companies they were elected to regulate. It’s time for a 20-year energy and business veteran to get in there and clean up this mess. Why should Georgians – specifically senior citizens – continue to choose between their gas & electric bills and prescription drug expenses?”
“We’ve got a lot of fire to take to these folks. The PSC is filled with people who are making decisions against our interest and it’s time to take it back.”
John Noel is a longtime Riverside homeowner in NW Atlanta, and for nearly 20 years has been the successful owner and President of Energy + Environment LLC, a national energy efficiency contracting company headquartered in Georgia. E+E specializes in making businesses and large facilities “leaner and greener” by providing a full menu of energy efficiency options. They were pioneers in the LED lighting space, implementing cost saving lighting retrofits years before the technology became the norm
