The Future Electric Utility: Regulatory Change

June 2, 2015

The growing risk to a significant municipal asset – electric utilities – and the increasing localization of energy decision-making with draw more municipalities into provincial regulatory discussions.

See earlier posts:

Municipal owners of electric utilities have an interest in seeing proactive regulatory change that helps pave the way to a new energy future.

The recently-announced fixed monthly charge to consumers will help mitigate the risk to LDCs and their owners but will not be sufficient.

I look forward to hearing from speakers at this week’s conference – The LDC of the Future – as they consider other regulatory options including the creation of new business models that would allow LDCs to engage effectively in the transition to a new energy market.
