Water utilities face mounting challenges related to water scarcity and unfunded mandates, creating a compelling need for a risk management system that can model revenue suﬃciency and the impact that decisions will have on rates. Furthermore, waste water operations are pressed by aging infrastructure and the requirement for additional capacity, thus prioritizing the need for an on-demand, cost-of-service analysis. Changing weather patterns have also created a critical need for new storm water infrastructure involving capital expenditures, increased O&M expenses, and ﬁnancing requirements.

Traditional energy utilities are challenged with regulations from the EPA resulting in unfunded mandates and the need to explore energy alternatives. Natural gas is an important and emerging source of energy, with approximately half the carbon footprint as coal. Alternative energy sources such as wind and solar are becoming more prominent, tapping into the inexhaustible energy of the sun. In order to truly model the ﬁnancial impact of required capital infrastructure and the critical need to ﬁnance these initiatives, an online risk management system that can price energy rates is essential. Mitigate the risk of customer class rate shock and anticipate the future with the ENERGY RATES PLANNER!
The need to plan, fund, and price capital infrastructure initiatives is a critical topic today. The options for funding these initiatives have increased along with the complexity and the need to assess ﬁnancial feasibility from various revenue sources. A dynamic pricing model is also essential to establish defensible fees and charges across customer service classes. These requirements, combined with emerging public/private partnerships, create a compelling need for a powerful budgeting, ﬁnancing, revenue suﬃciency, and pricing application. Using the INFRASTRUCTURE CAPITAL PLNNER take control of capital infrastructure projects and O&M budgets with the ability to quickly forecast revenue requirements!
