Taking a Hard Look at Capital Spending. What are You Trying to Accomplish? (white paper)

Utility sales have historically grown at a fairly consistent rate of 1.5-2.5% per year. In the last year, however, sales have flattened out or declined due to the economic slump and/or energy efficiency measures. In addition, as capital markets have become more skittish, it has become more difficult to secure financing of new debt due to a smaller pool of available capital. This sales slump and credit crunch have tightened cash flows and prompted utilities to take a hard look at capital projects to make sure they are making the most efficient use of their investment dollars.
