Gas 101 Training for
Mayors, Council Members, and City Managers

September 19, 2017

Marriot Griffin Gate

1800 Newtown Pike, Lexington, KY 40511

Download Agenda and Registration Form Register online at KYGas.org

The Kentucky Public Service Commission and the Kentucky Gas Association have partnered to develop Gas 101, a one-day training seminar for the mayors, council members, and city managers of the 49 Kentucky cities that operate natural gas distribution systems.

Kentucky's municipally-owned natural gas systems have common challenges, including complying with federal and state safety requirements, maintaining or upgrading aging infrastructure, and establishing and maintaining a sound financial position. Gas 101 will educate municipal officials about the financial, regulatory, and legal prerequisites for operational success.

Speakers include officials from the Kentucky Public Service Commission and the Kentucky Gas Association, as well as Kentucky business leaders. The Kentucky Public Service Commission strongly encourages city officials to attend. If you are directly or indirectly responsible for your city’s natural gas system, it is imperative that you have the knowledge to provide for that system’s safe, reliable, and efficient operation.

Big Rivers Electric Corporation
Focused Management Audit

Concentric Energy Advisors has completed its focused management and operations audit of Big Rivers Electric Corporation (“Big Rivers”). The public version of the report is available below.

Big Rivers is a member-owned not-for-profit generation and transmission rural electric cooperative organized pursuant to KRS Chapter 279. Big Rivers is in transition from having a total system load of roughly 1,500 MW, with 850 MW consumed by two aluminum smelters, to a total system load of 650 MW after the departure of the smelters.

In April 2014, the Kentucky Public Service Commission (PSC) ordered that a focused management audit be conducted of the strategic planning, management, and decision-making of Big Rivers relating to its efforts in mitigating the effects of the loss of the smelter load. An RFP was issued and Concentric Energy Advisors was selected to conduct the review.

An action plan addressing the findings and recommendations made by Concentric Energy Advisors was completed in December 2015. The PSC will monitor the implementation of the action plan until all of the recommended actions have been completed.
