Members of the Energy Group represent regulated utilities in all aspects of ratemaking before regulatory agencies. This includes representing electric T&D utilities and gas LDCs in traditional rate cases, involving issues such as return on equity, attrition, test year adjustments, amortizations, and prudency challenges. The group has also negotiated a number of long-term rate plans on behalf of electric and gas utilities, including performance based incentives, productivity offsets, minimum service quality standards, profit sharing, and government mandates. The firm also has represented utilities in stranded cost rate cases arising out of the restructuring of the Maine electric utilities; requests for accounting orders providing for future recovery of extraordinary costs; and special rate agreements between utilities and large industrial customers.
