Sustainable Belmont Marchh meeting
Monthly Meeting : Wednesday, March 2,   7:00 – 9:00 PM
Flett Room - Belmont Public Library - Concord Avenue

Greetings,

Building upon January’s meeting with smart meter expert Gary Fauth, we are keeping the conversation going this month and have invited Nancy Brockway to speak at the Sustainable Belmont meeting next Wednesday.

Nancy is former General Counsel for the Mass Department of Public Utilities, former commissioner on the New Hampshire Public Utilities Commission, the former Director of Multi-Utility Research and Policy at the National Regulatory Research Institute (NRRI), which until recently was the research arm of the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC).  She is perhaps the nation's leading expert on cyber-security and privacy issues involving Smart Meters. While at NRRI, she authored the report "Advanced Metering Infrastructure: What Regulators Need to Know about its Value to Residential Customers."

Nancy is now in practice as a private consultant, working primarily for offices making up what is called NASUCA (the National Association of State Utility Consumer Advocates), which work on public utility
regulation for state attorney general offices.

We will also have a brief presentation from Gil Myette from Energy New England who will be speaking on the BLMD's Green Choice program.

We hope you will join us for these important presentations.

John McAlpin
