Utilities are under pressure to minimize rate impacts on customers while maintaining the financial health of their organization.  This webinar will discuss key financial targets to help assure the long-term financial stability of the utility and ways to identify potential areas of cost reductions or efficiency improvements.  Participants will be provided information on how to assess the current financial condition of their utility, ways to use the financial targets to develop long-term rate projections and how to minimize potential rate changes on customers.   The webinar will also discuss the following:

  • Financial ratios the utility board should review on a regular basis
