John Noel, a longtime energy efficiency business owner and Democratic candidate for Georgia Public Service Commission District 3 leads all GA PSC Candidates in cash on hand less than three months before voting begins.
“I am excited to have wide support. This disclosure demonstrates that there is only one candidate in this Primary who practices efficiency. While I have spent less than 20%, my opponent has burned through nearly half of her contributions,” said Noel.
This week, Noel reported having $190,885.64 cash on hand and his primary opponent reported only having $155,173.21 cash on hand, having spent 44% of total contributions (compared to Noel’s 18%). The District 3 PSC incumbent only reports $131,475.92 cash on hand.
"As your next PSC Commissioner, I take protecting the pocketbooks of Georgia ratepayers very seriously and our campaign takes being good stewards of our supporters’ donations very seriously," said Noel. "Being able to do more with less, looking out for every dollar, and making sure that both our supporters and Georgia families are getting the best deal are important skills. They’re the reasons I'm so opposed to the Plant Vogtle boondoggle and believe I'm the most qualified candidate for the job."
John Noel is a longtime Riverside homeowner in NW Atlanta, and for nearly 20 years has been the successful owner and President of Energy + Environment LLC, a national energy efficiency contracting company headquartered in Georgia.

While there, he co-sponsored the first LEED construction bill for state buildings and was a leading fighter for environmental causes in Georgia. John’s home is largely solar and battery powered.
