Summary of Experience

Mr. Wall has applied his economics, financial modeling, and econometrics competencies to prepare cost of capital, rate design, cost of service, valuation, and demand forecast studies for electric and natural gas utilities throughout North America. Specifically, he has developed natural gas demand forecasts for the forecast and supply plans of utilities in Massachusetts. This included developing natural gas demand forecasts by customer class using SPSS, preparing the forecast and supply plan report, responding to data requests, and providing expert testimony. He has also prepared expert testimony and exhibits on cost of capital for numerous North American electric and gas utilities. This included preparing direct testimony, responding to data requests, drafting rebuttal testimony in response to intervening witnesses and assisting with hearing preparation.

Mr. Wall has worked on a number of projects related to rate design for North American electric and gas utilities in which he evaluated rate design restructuring and its impact on customer bills, developed marginal and embedded cost studies, designed rates, and prepared supporting testimony. He has also 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.
