John Noel, a 20-year resident of Atlanta, small business owner, and former member of the Georgia Legislature, officially announced his campaign for Georgia Public Service Commission on Wednesday (May 31) in Decatur. Surrounded by dozens of supporters, Noel spoke about his experience in energy consulting and environmental protection.

“I’m looking forward to a positive campaign dedicated to debating the many environmental, utility and leadership challenges our Public Service Commission faces,” Noel said. “As our next Public Service Commissioner, I will ensure that Georgia keeps up with the best energy practices and technology. I will make sure we invests wisely in clean and renewable energy, battery storage, and have a healthy mix of energy sources which will save ratepayers money.”

Noel also expressed concern over the management of the Votgle Nuclear Plant Project.

“I will not allow Georgia ratepayer money to be wasted as it has in the past and continues to be. I will be open and transparent about any issue that comes before the Public Service Commission,” Noel said. “There has been a lack of proper oversight on certain recent projects, and it’s time for that to change. There is no excuse for something, paid for by Georgia ratepayers, to be billions of dollars over budget and years behind schedule, and at risk of never providing any benefit for the every-day people who footed the bill.”

Noel is president and founder of Energy + Environment, an energy-efficiency company he started in Georgia nearly 20 years ago. Noel and his partner, Wendy Hogg, own an energy-efficient home in the neighborhood of Riverside in Atlanta. Noel was born and raised in Franklin, TN and served as both the Riverside Neighborhood Association President and a former State Representative in the Georgia House.
