Torgerson In Las Vegas For Electric Utility Conference

UIL Holdings President and Chief Executive Officer James Torgerson is running in some high profile company these days.

While UIL officials are busy back home dealing with the day-to-day issues of doing business - like power outages in service territory of the company's United Illuminating subsidiary and addressing concerns about tree trimming around the electric wires - Torgerson is at the Edison Electric Institute's annual meeting in Las Vegas. The Edison Electric Institute is a trade association that represents investor-owned electric utilities.

 And Torgerson is not just any run-of-the mill conference attendee. He spent Monday as part of a panel of utility executives and government officials conducting a presentation "Safeguarding The Grid."

 Among those speaking at the Edison Electric Institute's annual meeting this year are Berkshire Hathaway Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Warren Buffett and former U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates.

Torgerson is a member of the Edison Electric Institute's Board of Directors.
