Constructing a new energy project is only the beginning. To get the most out of your community’s investment, you need to ensure that everything is being operated and maintained appropriately.

Resources to help you:

  • Utility Business Management Guidebook (coming soon!): AEA, in partnership with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), is developing a comprehensive guidebook that answers all your questions about the best practices for running a rural electric utility.
  • Training: AEA also provides a number of training courses, free of charge, to give your local staff the skills and knowledge they need.
  • PCE Assistance: We can also help you set rates and report costs correctly so that you get the Power Cost Equalization (PCE) disbursement that your community members deserve.
  • Circuit Rider: We can also help rural utility operators and managers in the proper operations and maintenance of their generation and distribution infrastructure.
