Concentric has assisted a U.S regulated natural gas utility in addressing more than ten unique regulatory tasks related to rate case strategy in Washington D.C., Maryland, and Virginia over the past two years. These tasks have included filing strategies associated with a multiyear rate plan, climate policy, low-income program design, interruptible customer rates, renewable natural gas, and capitalization of information technology expenses.
The company’s ability to call on Concentric on short notice to address specific and varied regulatory questions has allowed the company to be more nimble in managing its rate cases. The company appreciates that Concentric has a team with extensive expertise that can address a given task with very little lead time. Over the two years, Concentric has developed a set of relationships across the company which have led to continued and expanded opportunities to engage with the company’s staff in the regulatory, finance, operations, public policy, and legal departments.
