Regulatory and Public Policy

As our industry undergoes an unprecedented transformation, we are working with our regulators and policymakers at the federal, state and local levels to ensure the appropriate regulatory and legislative reforms are in place.

The electric utility industry is one of the most highly regulated sectors of the U.S. economy. As our industry undergoes an unprecedented transformation, we are working with our regulators and policymakers at the federal, state and local levels to ensure the appropriate regulatory and legislative reforms are in place to balance the cost of keeping the lights on and the need to modernize the grid with our customers’ ability to pay.

Our generation, transmission and distribution system investments directly affect our customers and shareholders. These long-lived investments must coexist with prevailing policy considerations such as environmental rules, energy efficiency, affordability and reliability. As we transition to a clean energy future, we are reshaping our asset base in a reliable and affordable manner for our customers, while managing the financial risk for our shareholders and recognizing that the transition will take some time to fully execute.
