WASHINGTON -- The U.S. secretary of energy this week appointed North Dakota Public Service Commission Chair Brian Kalk to the National Coal Council.

The PSC regulates electric and gas utilities, power plants, coal mine reclamation and more in the state.

Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz appointed Kalk to represent the PSC’s views on the council, which makes recommendations to the department on coal industry matters, according to a news release.

“As the national discussion continues about pending CO2 rules, it’s critical that the voice of consumers is represented,” Kalk said in the release. “North Dakota has a huge stake in the future of coal and coal technology. Coal must continue to be an important player in our nation’s energy future.”
