Tim Echols, Vice Chairman, Georgia Public Service Commission
Tim Echols created the Clean Energy Roadshow that has traveled the state every summer for the last seven years. This educational event travels to cities helping commuters, businesses and municipal governments evaluate alternative fuel for their transportation and residential use. Echols also led the effort to provide the Salvation Army and two other agencies with $5 million to help low income seniors in Atlanta with heating assistance.
When Echols is not managing Georgia’s energy portfolio, he is fighting sex trafficking and advocating for the youngest of Georgia’s citizens. He created the “UnHoly Tour” which helps policy makers see first-hand the harms of sex trafficking. Echols founded “TeenPact” and grew the mock legislative youth program for teens to 38 states in his tenure. He continues to serve on the Board of Directors.
