WHO WE ARE
UAE provides a wide range of regulatory services to its members to keep electricity and natural gas rates affordable for the organization's members, many of whom compete globally. UAE is actively involved in the representation of industrial customers before the Utah Legislature and Public Utilities Commissions. The organization provides expert testimony in utility proceedings for PacifiCorp and Questar Gas Company on electricity issues and natural gas issues, including gas transportation.
At the regional and federal levels, UAE provides leadership and intervention on behalf of its members before the Western Electricity Coordinating Council (WECC) - the electric reliability council in the West - and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). On policy issues, UAE works to support our members' overall policy plans by resolving issues with administrative, legislative, and regulatory entities. UAE participates in and monitors what is occurring at the Northern Tier Transmission Group (NTTG) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on issues that impact the region and state.
January 2021 Newsletter
The January Monthly Newsletter features articles on the the Sierra Club's report on PacifiCorp's energy transition, the push by Western governors to move Rockies gas through the west, Wyoming's goal to capture carbon, President Biden's first steps toward overturning Trump's environmental actions, EPA air polluton rules, and more.
Due to COVID-19 and the risk of social gathering, UAE is currently hosting its meetings remotely via Webex. Our next monthly webinar meeting will be held on Thursday, March 18, from 9 am to 10 am MDT.
Our speakers will be from the Intermountain Industrial Assessment Center at the University of Utah to discuss opportunities for commercial natural gas customers to adopt improved, future-facing strategies that are energy efficient and help reduce pollution.
