UTC CEO Sheryl Osiene-Riggs Issues Statement on the Jan. 6 Events at the Capitol

WASHINGTON—Utilities Technology Council President and CEO Sheryl Osiene-Riggs issued the following statement in response to the Jan. 6 events at the U.S. Capitol: “I have struggled to put into words my emotions about what transpired in the Capitol yesterday. Our Capitol. While I know this great country will overcome these events, I also know it will not be easy. As a citizen, I am speechless, but not shocked. As much as I love this country, we have never truly and honestly dealt with our nation’s original sins. We have allowed transgressions and divisions to fester, and rather than do the hard work of healing and understanding, far too many have instead stoked these flames. I am a person of faith and still believe our country’s…

Riggs: UTC ‘Disappointed’ in Court Decision Rejecting Stay of Harmful FCC Spectrum Order

Washington—Oct. 1, 2020— Utilities Technology Council President and CEO Sheryl Riggs issued the following statement in response to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit decision rejecting a request from utility and public-safety groups to stay the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC, the Commission) April 2020 6 GHz order: “We are disappointed with today’s decision by the Court to deny a stay of the effectiveness of the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC, the Commission) order allowing unlicensed operations in the 6 GHz band. The FCC’s order threatens to cause harmful interference to mission-critical communications in the 6 GHz band used by utilities, public safety and other vital users. We do, however, appreciate the court’s prompt action and look forward to continuing our judicial…

UTC ‘Looks Forward’ to Working with States on Potential Sharing in 4.9 GHz Spectrum Band

Washington—Sept. 30, 2020—The Utilities Technology Council issued the following statement in response to the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC, the Commission) approval of an order permitting states to lease access to the 4.9 GHz spectrum band: “We still are awaiting the final order approved today by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC, the Commission) allowing states to lease spectrum to utilities and other entities in the 4.9 GHz band. As our nation’s electric, gas, and water utilities modernize their infrastructure, access to spectrum is critical to ensure the continued safe, reliable and secure delivery of essential energy and water services. Utility communications systems underpin the reliable, resilient operation of essential electric, gas, and water services, and UTC looks forward to working with states to explore opportunities for…

UTC Awards Recognize Importance of ICT Networks to Grid Reliability, Resilience

WASHINGTON—Aug. 25, 2020 – The Utilities Technology Council (UTC) marked the launch of its first virtual annual Telecom & Technology conference by announcing numerous awards to utilities and personnel who demonstrated initiative, perseverance, and innovative thinking throughout the past year. UTC’s awards recognize the importance of utility Information and Communications Technology (ICT) systems and the employees who build, operate, and maintain these systems to support the reliability, resilience, and safety of the nation’s electric systems.

Utilities: Economics, Not Pole-Attachment Policies, Are the Real Barrier to Broadband Deployment

Washington—July 29, 2020—The Utilities Technology Council issued the following statement in response to the Federal Communications Commission’s declaratory order on wireless pole-attachment regulations: “Electric utilities empower broadband deployment. All over the country, electric utilities of different sizes and ownership are working to bring broadband service to areas unserved and underserved by traditional telecommunications companies. While there may be a few reasons why certain parts of the country remain unserved, nearly all parties agree that the biggest factor is cost. This is why utilities have such high hopes for the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC, the Commission) Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF) auction that we believe will help utilities and other parties bring broadband to more parts of the U.S. “This is also why we are disappointed…

UTC, Utilities Seek Court Review of FCC Spectrum Decision

WASHINGTON—The Federal Communications Commission (FCC, the Commission) acted unlawfully and against the public interest when it permitted a host of new users into a vital spectrum band that will likely cause communications challenges for public safety and critical-infrastructure industries. The Utilities Technology Council, joined by the American Public Power Association, and the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, filed a petition with the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to overturn the FCC’s April 2020 decision that opened up the 6 GHz spectrum band to unlicensed use. Utilities and public safety entities use the 6 GHz band for mission-critical communications; any disruption or interference stemming from new unlicensed users will likely degrade and diminish these critical communications, potentially threatening life and safety. Despite…
