(Bismarck, ND) -- A 10-year veteran of a prominent North Dakota commission is running to maintain her role in the upcoming November General Election.
Julie Fedorchak is a longtime member of the North Dakota Public Service Commission. She joined WDAY Radio to share her philosophy as a board member, the balance between adding green energy sources and maintaining fossil fuel sources, and keeping both utility providers and consumers happy.
"I would be honored to serve the citizens of this state for another six years," said Fedorchak, "I feel like I've really got the connections...I've got a lot of regional leadership opportunities and national leadership opportunities to take North Dakota's position and North Dakota's goals as it relates to energy and electricity service."
Fedorchak spoke on increasing the resiliency of the state's electrical grid, which she says should have some priority due to severe winter storms that often hit the region. She says the Public Service Commission works to ensure utility companies have the resources they need, while also ensuring the commission stays out of the way.
"We want to invest enough to make it strong, stable and reliable during North Dakota's extreme weather, while also not going overboard and not charging customers too much," said Fedorchak, "That is the balance we try to work with the companies."
