Godfrey & Kahn Attorney David Gilles Appointed to Public Service Commission Wind Siting Council

April 09, 2010

Godfrey & Kahn is pleased to announce that attorney David J. Gilles has been appointed to the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin (PSC) Wind Siting Council. Godfrey & Kahn is the only law firm in Wisconsin with a representative appointed to the council.

An advisory body comprising of 15 members, the Wind Siting Council is charged with advising the PSC regarding the development of administrative rules and regulations that will govern the installation and use of sometimes-controversial wind energy technology. Dedicated to serving the public interest, the PSC is an independent agency that regulates over 1,100 Wisconsin public utilities, including water, natural gas and telecommunications. The PSC approves the rate changes and construction of power plants, including those that generate energy from renewable sources.

Gilles, a shareholder and member of Godfrey & Kahn's Environment & Energy Strategies Practice Group, focuses his practice on energy regulatory matters. Before joining Godfrey & Kahn, he served in Wisconsin state government. During his tenure as General Counsel to the PSC from 2003 to 2007, two pieces of legislation were enacted that set standards for renewable resource portfolios and streamlined the approval process for energy facilities. He earned a bachelor's degree from the University of Dayton and a law degree from the University of Wisconsin.
