New Utility Business Model

The Midwestern Governors’ Association¬† (MGA) will organize a project to alert the staffs of public utility commissions and other elected and appointed officials in Midwestern states to the issues surrounding the changing nature of the electric utility business model, as more distributed generation and customer choice impacts the traditional business model. MGA seeks to obtain assistance in this project from the Great Plains Institute (GPI).
