Planning and System Studies

Effective planning provides the roadmap for the future of a utility, both short term and long term. Planning and systems studies for both distribution and transmission systems come in many forms. The outcome of system planning is a better understanding of the current system and preparation of criteria for future investment requirements, whether for new facilities or for improvements to existing facilities.

Evaluation of service costs in order to establish fair and flexible rate structures are an additional aspect to the planning arena. The end goal is to provide utilities the means to plan for, invest in, develop, and maintain sufficient, reliable, and cost-effective systems and services to consumers.
