UAE welcomes new member: Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints!
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.

UAE's next monthly breakfast will be held on November 14, 2019, at the Alta Club. Our speaker will be Joelle Steward, PacifiCorp Vice President of Regulation. The topic of discussion will be on PacifiCorp's Integrated Resource Plan filing to be made in mid October.
