What others have said about “The Basics”

“The speakers were knowledgeable and execution was of the highest quality.”

“Good general overview of the rate case process.”

“The speakers did great at explaining materials in an easy understandable way.”

“I feel that if I were to start a working on a rate case tomorrow, I have a better idea of where to begin and what questions to ask than I would have, had I not attended the conference. I appreciated the questions and opinions from differing points of view – regulators, energy providers, and interveners.”

“The speakers were extremely knowledgeable with useful material.”

“The LDC course exceeded my expectations. I learned about many aspects of the utility ratemaking process.”
