A generation portfolio with proliferating amounts of variable renewable generation combined with attaining carbon reduction goals has sparked a plethora of legislative and regulatory policy directives. These burgeoning directives have begun to transform utility planning to increasingly focus on attaining policy goals at the expense of strategic goals. While well intentioned, many of these policy directives are created in somewhat of a vacuum, and are often at odds with fundamental utility objectives.
Well thought regulatory testimony allows utilities to openly discuss policy with legislators and regulators. Such testimony can influence the content of future policy to better align with the realities of operating a safe and reliable electric power grid. It also enables utilities to counter the arguments of single-issue non-governmental organizations, by offering evidence that illuminates a broader perspective.
Let us work with you to develop an enterprise-wide plan to better communicate specific issues through testimony that can set a course of action that benefits all stakeholders.
