Internship on Regulatory Processes

Date: March 2012
Location: Frankfort, Kentucky

With the support of the US Agency for International Development, NARUC organized a two-week internship for three Georgia National Energy and Water Regulatory Commission staff at the Kentucky Public Service Commission. The program was structured as a mixture of informal discussions, observation of Kentucky PSC activities, shadowing of Kentucky PSC staff as they conducted routine job duties and visits to regulated utilities. Participants observed an evidentiary hearing and Commission meetings, discussed the legal basis for various commission jurisdictional responsibilities and visited a natural gas storage facility and a joint electric transmission control center.
