Service: Independent Monitoring
Client: Public Utility Commission
Client Objective: Protect the ratepayer's interest
Engagement Description: E3 Consulting was retained by the regulator of an investor-owned utility to help ensure a coal-fired plant being built by a utility was completed on time and that the cost increases over the original budget were justified.
Client Result: In a review of construction change order requests, E3 Consulting identified a utility decision that would have violated the Project's approved air permit. The utility reverted to the original design, thereby avoiding plant commissioning delays, with and associated potential AFUDC cost of up to $130 Million.
