In recognition of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) is joining Commissions across the country to encourage a “Day of Utility Service” on Monday, January 21. The initiative is part of the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners’ (NARUC) “Anybody Can Serve, So Let’s Conserve” campaign to highlight Dr. King’s public service legacy.
“To honor Dr. King’s public service legacy, consumers can seek opportunities to help others in their communities,” said PSC Chairman Art Graham. “Some ideas to make ‘your day off, a day on’ are to help with Hurricane Michael recovery, volunteer at a homeless shelter, or help elderly neighbors learn conservation habits to lower utility bills. There are plenty of ways to follow Dr. King’s legacy of service to others.”
Efficiency, demand response, conservation, and affordability are practices that NARUC has emphasized repeatedly as it continues to advance the spirit of its 2008 resolution designating MLK Day as a Day of Utility Service.
NARUC is a non-profit organization founded in 1889 whose members include the governmental agencies that are engaged in the regulation of utilities and carriers in the fifty States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. NARUC's member agencies regulate telecommunications, energy, and water utilities. NARUC represents the interests of State public utility commissions before the three branches of the Federal government.
