The Alabama Industrial Energy Consumers (AIEC) held its 13th annual Spring Meeting May 14-15, 2018, in Montgomery, Ala. An association composed of companies owning and operating industrial facilities in Alabama, the AIEC addresses issues — particularly regulatory issues — impacting the provision of electric utility services to Alabama industrial customers and develops public policy for electricity across the state through its counsel C. Richard “Rick” Hill Jr. at Capell & Howard P.C.
Joining AIEC members as guests at the Spring Meeting were members of the Alabama Public Service Commission (PSC), Place 1 Commissioner Jeremy Oden (R-Vinemont); Place 2 Commissioner Chris “Chip” Beeker Jr. (R-Eutaw); and Jeff Johnston, advisor to Commissioner Twinkle Cavanaugh (R-Montgomery) for regulatory/research analysis.
The Spring Meeting began Monday evening when AIEC members gathered at Central Restaurant, located in Montgomery’s downtown area, for a cocktail reception and dinner. On Tuesday morning, attendees came together at the Capell & Howard Montgomery office to review the regulatory activities of the past year and discuss the new Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and how it will affect both individuals and businesses.
AIEC members concluded the Spring Meeting by identifying specific objectives and action items through 2018 and establishing plans to convene again this fall in Birmingham.
