Electric Utilities

Operating a utility requires significant and continual capital investments and the ability to get a fair rate of return largely turns on the decisions of state regulators. Whether seeking a change in rates or economic regulations or approval of a financing, merger or acquisition, operators want speed, predictability and fairness in the decision-making process by the boards and commissions regulating their industry in New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Delaware.

Guiding a rate case, financing, or economic regulatory matters through state review requires a detailed knowledge of state law, the approval process, and the players involved. Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr attorneys have experience advising utility operators on these and other matters affecting their business, including mergers and acquisitions, corporate restructuring, deregulation and competitive service designation.
