Miles Farmer

Senior Attorney, Climate & Clean Energy Program

Working with NRDC's Eastern Energy team and the Sustainable FERC Project, Miles Farmer aims to make our electricity system cleaner and more efficient. He advocates before state public service commissions, regional grid operators, and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, with a particular focus on matters before the New York Public Service Commission and New York Independent System Operator. Farmer is especially interested in areas where state energy policies intersect with federal power markets and in improving the design and structure of future power markets. Prior to joining NRDC, he was an associate at Latham & Watkins LLP, concentrating on energy regulation and project finance. He clerked for Judge Debra Livingston in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. Farmer holds a bachelor's degree in ecology and evolutionary biology from Yale University and a J.D. from Yale Law School. He is based in NRDC's New York City office.
