Webinar Description

The Energy Information Administration (EIA) collects data from every utility in the country on its annual Form EIA-861 survey, and from many utilities on other survey requests. The data collected by the agency provides vital information, and are also important components for several APPA reports. Despite the frequency of these surveys, survey respondents are not always consistent in how they report information, leading to anomalous results. In order for EIA and for the Association to provide the most accurate information possible, it’s important for survey respondents to report consistently. Experts from the EIA will go over the forms most familiar to APPA members, focusing on those items which cause the most confusion. They will also answer your questions and provide feedback on what to include – and what not to include – in certain categories.

Topics include:

  • Typical reporting errors
  • What should be reported in revenue and sales categories on EIA forms
  • How to report capacity and generation totals
  • Should PILOT amounts be included in revenues
  • How to distinguish between customer categories
