Regulatory Integrity

Regulatory Integrity

We adhere to a policy of strict regulatory compliance and pursue frequent, open communication with regulators regarding our business performance.

Challenges and Opportunities

Our industry must adapt to these changes, which will require significant investments in infrastructure without threatening the reliable service that our customers depend upon. Berkshire Hathaway Energy is committed to working with regulators, legislators, policymakers and communities to ensure we meet the energy needs of our customers as these changes emerge.

As we have built our solar generation portfolio, we recognize that others have as well, including customers. Those who choose self-generation receive energy from the grid and deliver energy to it, and we look forward to having them as a new type of customer. We are committed to working with our regulators on cost-effective solutions for these customers who will use our system differently than others.

Reasonable Prices

Reasonable, fair prices are critical to maintaining customer satisfaction. MidAmerican Energy Company, Pacific Power and Rocky Mountain Power have worked hard to hold their average rates well below regional averages. Efforts to minimize rate increases will continue across all our businesses.

2016 Accomplishments

  • AltaLink’s proposal to reduce its cost to customers was approved by the Alberta Utilities Commission in May 2016. As a result, Albertans will save approximately C$600 million by the end of 2018.
  • Pacific Power worked with key stakeholders and the Oregon legislature to create innovative new public policy – the Clean Electricity and Coal Transition Act – that identifies a path to provide the cleaner energy the company’s Oregon customers are asking for, in a way that is affordable.
