Back in December, we published a list of the top 10 public utility commission actions of 2016. With 2017 halfway elapsed, we check in on the top public utility commission (PUC) actions so far this year. Not surprisingly, the challenges PUCs are grappling with are scattered widely: sweeping changes in rate design, utility business model reforms, grid modernization investments, distribution system planning, electric vehicle charging infrastructure and rates, renewable energy tariffs, and interconnection requests, to name a few. Without further ado, here is a status check of the top 10 matters before PUCs in 2017 so far.
