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 takes an uncomplicated look at the often-complex process of generating revenue and profits as a regulated investor-owned utility. Participants attending this live seminar learn the differences in how non-regulated and regulated companies make money; why utilities are constrained by regulation and how regulation balances consumers’ needs with those of utility shareholders; how cost-of-service and incentive ratemaking work; and the various factors that determine if a utility exceeds or falls short of earnings potential. Upon conclusion of this How Utilities Make Money live seminar, participants should be able to confidently answer common questions such as "How do electric utilities make money?" and "How do gas utilities make money?"
