During its annual meeting last week, the Western Interstate Energy Board (WIEB) elected David Bobzien, Governor’s Office of Energy (GOE) Director, as chair of the WEIB Board of Directors.

“Nevada is at the geographical center of the West, which makes us a keystone piece in the future of the western electrical grid,” Director Bobzien said. “I am honored to serve as the incoming chair of the Western Interstate Energy Board, and I look forward to continued collaboration with my colleagues throughout the West.”
