MISSISSAUGA —Kaleed Rasheed, Minister of Public and Business Service Delivery appointed Indrani Butany-DeSouza to the Board of Directors of the Electrical Safety Authority (ESA).

“On behalf of our Board of Directors, we are pleased that Minister Rasheed appointed Ms. Butany-DeSouza to the Board,” said ESA Chair Annette Bergeron. “The mandate of the Electrical Safety Authority is to improve electrical safety in the province of Ontario and keep people safe from electrical harms. Ms. Butany-DeSouza’s experience in the utility industry with Elexicon Energy is valuable for ESA to maintain connection to the local electricity distribution companies.”

Currently, Butany-DeSouza is President and CEO of Elexicon Energy.

“I am very excited about this appointment to the ESA Board of Directors,” said Butany-DeSouza. “I am very familiar with ESA’s safety mandate but also how they want to be a true collaborator in the energy sector and be part of the ecosystem to deal with new technologies and innovations. I’m looking forward to those conversations at the board table.”

Butany-DeSouza’s appointment came into effect on December 22, 2022 for a term of two years. She replaces Rob Mace whose term expired on December 15, 2022 – after serving three terms, including as Chair of the People and Culture & Governance Committee.
