In June, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced that Zibelman had been confirmed by the New York State Senate to serve as PSC commissioner. Prior to joining the PSC, Zibelman was founder, president and CEO of Viridity Energy Inc., a software provider for the energy marketplace.

Zibelman was also previously the executive vice president and chief operating officer of PJM, a regional transmission organization that serves 14 states throughout the eastern U.S. In addition, Zibelman held executive positions at Xcel Energy, served as general counsel to the New Hampshire Public Utilities Commission and was a special assistant attorney general in the Minnesota Attorney General's Office.
