Summary of Experience

Mr. Wall has applied his economics, financial modeling, advanced statistics, and econometrics competencies to prepare cost of capital, rate design, rate consolidation, marginal cost, cost of service, valuation, and demand forecast studies for electric and natural gas utilities. These studies have been submitted in utility regulatory proceedings throughout North America. Specifically, he has assisted in the development of natural gas price and effective degree day forecasts, developed natural gas demand forecasts by customer class using SPSS, and contributed to the development of a forecasting and supply planning report and supported data requests.

Mr. Wall has also worked on a number of rate design projects for Northeast gas and electric utilities in which he evaluated rate design restructuring and its impact on customer bills, developed marginal cost studies, designed rates, and prepared supporting testimony. Mr. Wall has prepared cost of service studies for Mid-Atlantic and Midwest utilities, and evaluated the impact of different rate alternatives and solar generation compensation approaches for a Midwest municipal electric utility.

Mr. Wall holds a B.A. in Mathematics and Economics from Saint Peter’s College where he graduated Summa Cum Laude and a Master’s degree in Economics from Northeastern University.
