Last week, Mark Ferron, former executive with Deutsche Bank and Salomon Brothers stepped down from his post with the California Public Utility Commission to focus on his battle with prostate cancer. As an epilogue to his almost three year career with the CPUC, Ferron scribed a three page letter giving his candid review of the state of California energy and climate policy, as well as the CPUC.
Below is a copy of his letter, a must read for anyone interested in solar, energy or the climate.
We would like to thank Mr. Fennon for his service and wish him the best of luck in his fight against cancer and in his future endeavours.
