Review operating history, debt obligations, and prepare forecasts
  • Review billing system data and identify issues
  • Evaluate the impact of existing debt restructuring and planned TWDB debt issuances

Develop and assist with the implementation of an improved rate structure
  • Eliminate cross customer-class subsidies
  • Reduce revenue declines related to weather events
  • Compare current & recommended rates to a relevant peer group
