AIEC holds 12th annual Spring Meeting

The membership of AIEC held its annual Spring Meeting on May 15-16, 2017, in Montgomery, Ala. Guests included numerous representatives of Alabama Power Co. and all members of the Alabama Public Service Commission (PSC) — President Twinkle Andress Cavanaugh (R-Montgomery), Place 1 Commissioner Jeremy Oden (R-Vinemont) and Place 2 Commissioner Chris “Chip” Beeker Jr. (R-Eutaw).

The event began Monday evening when AIEC members gathered at Central Restaurant, located in Montgomery’s downtown area, for a cocktail reception and dinner.

On Tuesday morning, attendees reviewed the regulatory activities of the past year and afterward heard from Alabama Power’s representatives about AIEC matters of interest, which was largely an overview of the status of all rates.

PSC Commissioners Cavanaugh, Oden and Beeker joined attendees for a robust roundtable discussion during the lunch session, which focused on various methodologies to control costs. The Commissioners closed their remarks by encouraging the continued dialogue of AIEC members to help address increasing cost concerns.

AIEC members concluded the Spring Meeting by identifying specific objectives and action items through 2017 and establishing plans to convene again this fall in Birmingham.
