The Challenges of a Changing Regulatory Environment
2:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Renaissance St. Louis Grand • St. Louis, MO

At a time when consumers are reeling under the impact of the mortgage crisis, high unemployment, and electricity rates that are rising higher and faster, utilities and regulators are under increased pressure to provide solutions. Adding to those pressures are concerns related to power quality and restoration in the wake of natural disasters such as Hurricane Irene; federal initiatives regarding transmission (planning, siting, and cost allocation), grid modernization, and demand response; state mandates regarding renewables and efficiency; EPA compliance requirements; cybersecurity; and an uncertain investment climate for new and replacement infrastructure and capital expenditures. These will add increasing costs to an already tenuous situation for consumers!

Held in conjunction with the NARUC and NASUCA Annual Meetings in St. Louis, the program will be open to all those interested at no charge. Registration, limited seating, and materials will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis; therefore, you are highly encouraged to pre-register by November 4th. Registration instructions are in the attached form. Please join us for what promises to be a robust and productive dialogue! Learn more.
