Austin Energy Governance – the City is considering changing the governance of the electric utility of Austin (Austin Energy) to an appointed board, rather than the City Council. Many feel this will result in losing local control of the utility, others feel it will help streamline and increase efficiency. We will have advocates for both sides. Mike Sloan of Virtus Energy Research Associates was in the studio with environmental advocate Jere Locke. We also had Lanny Sinkin from Solar San Antonio phoning in to discuss the perspective from San Antonio. It owns a municipal utility similar to Austin except it is run by a separate appointed Board.
