DEERFIELD, IL, June 1, 2017: MCR Performance Solutions, LLC, a leading management consulting firm serving electric, natural gas and water utilities, will be participating in the G&T Accounting and Finance Association’s annual conference on June 19-22 in Anchorage, Alaska. This annual conference provides an opportunity for G&T finance and accounting professionals to discuss recent events and trends impacting the industry.
Jim Pardikes, Vice President, and Ron Kennedy, Director, of MCR’s Transmission Strategy practice, will provide insights on transmission investing for G&Ts on Wednesday, June 21 at 9:00 am. The presentation shows how investing in transmission can create value for its members. Transmission investing not only can enhance reliability, but also provides G&Ts an opportunity to own rather than “rent,” because owning transmission can partially hedge rapidly rising transmission rates; the higher the investment, the larger the hedge.
“Many G&Ts are beginning to run transmission like a business—a core element includes proactively looking for profitable opportunities to invest in transmission,” Pardikes said in anticipation of participating in the upcoming conference.
