Key Metrics for Utilities, Jon Cameron, Senior Municipal Advisor, Ehlers

When undertaking a utility rate study, we are frequently asked questions such as “how much unrestricted cash should we have?” “Is our equipment replacement fund over or underfunded?” “Should we use cash or debt financing for this upcoming project?” “Is our rate of return sufficient?” “When do we reach a point of having too much debt, and when do our user rates become too high for our customers?” This session will examine some of the key metrics for evaluating the health of utilities, including factors evaluated by Moody’s and Standard & Poors for rating revenue bond debt, as well as factors evaluated by the PSC in review of rate cases.
