National Grid US President Tom King today issued the following statement on
the confirmation of Ernest Moniz as Energy Secretary.

I commend the US Senate for unanimously confirming Ernest Moniz as Energy
Secretary. The overwhelming support, on a 97-0 vote, speaks volumes to Moniz’s
background and expertise in energy, innovation, and science. Moniz has
excelled at creating solutions that address the energy and environmental
challenges of today and that also recognize the concerns of tomorrow. I look
forward to working with Secretary Moniz to promote and implement these
solutions.
