Coal Ash Disposal – The Topic Many Electric Utilities Need to Address (webinar)

Are the decommissioning and ash pond closure activities for shuttered coal plants causing management distractions and cost overruns? If so, Environmental Liability Risk Transfer (Risk Transfer) can provide a fixed cost solution to transfer the obligations and risk of decommissioning activities to a third party. Additionally Risk Transfer can create a viable redevelopment plan for the site, thereby creating goodwill with the community, ratepayers and regulators.

Join MCR Performance Solutions and Forsite Development Inc. for a free webinar discussing the benefits of Risk Transfer. We will discuss a number of aspects of this process, including:

  • General structure of environmental risk transfer
  • Indemnity from future liabilities
  • Environmental insurance options for utilities
  • Redevelopment opportunities

We will also take real-time questions from the audience. We hope you’ll join us!
