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 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.
