Regulatory and Legislative Changes Affecting Rate-Case Strategies

Rick Starkweather, partner and regulatory practice leader at ScottMadden, recently developed a research article titled, “Regulatory and Legislative Changes Affecting Rate-Case Strategies.” The article is featured in the February 2017 edition of the Natural Gas & Electricity Journal, a publication available through the Wiley Online Library; which is one of the largest and most authoritative collections of online journals, books, and research resources.

This article provides a comprehensive look at the evolving regulatory framework for utilities. It examines key industry drivers, evolving business models, and some of the changes in state jurisdiction regulations around distributed energy resources before delving into rate-case strategies to respond to these changes.
