AEA is developing a targeted utility management assistance program with funding from USDA and the Denali Commission. Utilities will be trained on general operations of a utility such as proper operations and maintenance; the role of the utility board; responsibilities of the utility manager, clerk, and operator; and financial management actions needed to effectively manage the electric utility to move it toward sustainability. Assistance and training will be provided through a combination of remote training, group classes, and site visits. AEA will be collaborating with DCRA to provide this training.

Below is a guidebook for managing a PCE-eligible electric utilities. The two Excel files include templates to assist the utility manager to keep track of the finances and operations of the utility. Please contact AEA if you would like any assistance.
