NEW YORK, Feb. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Edison Electric Institute (EEI) President Tom Kuhn, Executive Vice President of the Business Operations Group and Regulatory Affairs Phil Moeller, and Vice President of Energy Supply and Finance Richard McMahon today briefed Wall Street analysts, bankers, and investors on the state of the U.S. electric power industry. Kuhn, Moeller, and McMahon discussed a range of issues, including tax reform implementation, infrastructure priorities, cleaner energy, grid security and storm response, the federal regulatory landscape, ESG/sustainability reporting, and customer solutions.
“Each February, our Wall Street briefing provides a terrific opportunity to reflect on all that we accomplished over the past year on behalf of EEI’s member companies, America’s investor-owned electric companies, and their customers,” said Kuhn. “Perhaps, more important, it allows us to outline all the opportunities and challenges we have before us in the coming year as we work to build and deliver a smarter energy future for America.”
“In 2017, passage of tax reform legislation was a top industry priority and a win for electricity customers,” Kuhn emphasized. “It also provides a solid foundation for one of 2018’s major policy initiatives: infrastructure investment.”
“If 2017 was a year of change, 2018 is here to remind us that the pace of change is only accelerating,” added Kuhn. “One thing remains constant, however – our industry’s commitment to meeting customers’ needs by building and using smarter energy infrastructure, by providing even cleaner energy, and by creating the energy solutions they want.”
