Combined Electricity/Natural Gas How Your Utility Makes Money

Length: Half day (two sessions can be presented in one day)
Prerequisites: None

The overriding goal of any investor-owned utility is to make money while providing cost-effective, safe, and reliable service to its customers. Yet many utility company employees do not fully understand how their companies are regulated and what factors impact utility earnings. How Your Utility Makes Money is customized to your utility and takes an uncomplicated look at the often complex process of generating revenue and profits as a regulated investor-owned utility. Participants learn the difference in how non-regulated versus regulated companies make money; why utilities are constrained by regulation and how regulation balances consumers’ needs with a utility’s needs; how cost-of-service and incentive ratemaking works; and the various factors that determine if a utility exceeds or falls short of earnings potential.

What you will learn

  • The basic revenue and earnings formulae and how they apply to non-regulated companies and to utilities
