STATEMENT BY MAYOR MICHAEL R. BLOOMBERG ON RESIGNATION OF NEW YORK CITY ENERGY POLICY TASK FORCE CHAIR GIL C. QUINIONES
"Throughout his service as Senior Vice President of Energy & Telecommunications at the City's Economic Development Corporation and Chair of our Energy Policy Task Force, Gil played an integral role helping to shape and implement New York City's energy policies and programs. He proved to be an invaluable advisor on a wide array of energy-related issues, reviewing and offering guidance on land-use concerns, service restoration during outages, and proposed projects, such as power plants and electric transmission lines. Most recently, he helped craft and begin implementing the energy-related initiatives in PlaNYC, New York City's long-term sustainability plan.
"I am very grateful to Gil for his hard work over the past four years on behalf of New York City, and I am glad he will continue to work to see that New Yorkers have efficient, reliable and clean energy in his new role at the New York Power Authority. I know he will excel at NYPA, and I wish him all the best."
