If you’re a governor of a State associated with T Graham Edwards (new Electricities CEO), you’ll know the T doesn’t stand for Teddy bear. Edwards doesn’t have a problem standing up for his companies even against state governments. The whole question now becomes…is he going to stand up for the ratepayers of eastern North Carolina?
From the Myrtle Beach Insider:
T. Graham Edwards – That’s right the former president and CEO of Santee Cooper and South Carolina’s answer to Reddy Kilowatt is said to be on B&C’s short list. Edwards is currently the CEO of Midwest ISO, an independent, nonprofit organization that supports the constant availability of electricity in 15 U.S. states and the Canadian province of Manitoba. Edwards, still has extensive, high level business and political contacts throughout the Palmetto State, and is best known for his brawls with South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford over control of Santee Cooper.
From Washington Energy Report:
Mr. Edwards argued that MISO saves its members more than a half a billion dollars every year, through increased system reliability, more efficient dispatch and reserve deployment, and avoided transmission construction costs.
In a November 2007 letter, six governors of Midwest states wrote MISO President and Chief Executive Officer T. Graham Edwards to complain about the interconnection study process
Last November, the governors of Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin told Midwest ISO President & CEO T. Graham Edwards that wind developers in their states face a crisis "as a result of the current Midwest ISO policies governing the interconnection of wind resources to the transmission grid."
