The Value of Generation, Transmission, and Distribution Relationships (BLC #960.1)
1-1/2 Skill Builder credits

This course is designed for all electric cooperative directors and CEOs. It places particular emphasis on directors and CEOs selected by their boards to serve on the G&T's board. Given the complexity of today's electric industry, all directors and CEOs should have a holistic understanding of the challenges and risks faced by G&Ts in their mission to provide their member systems with reliable and economical power supply. This fast-paced, dynamic and interactive course features practical discussions about the G&T board's oversight responsibilities and how those responsibilities differ from those of the distribution board.
Key Topics:
  • The “what" and “why" of generation & transmission power cooperatives and their role in providing reliable, responsible, and economical electric energy to their member systems.
  • The scale and complexity of G&T financials, regulatory issues, legal issues, costs, and other challenges faced by G&Ts.
  • What are the value-added services provided by the G&T and how can they benefit the distribution system.
  • How to navigate the fiduciary duty of the distribution cooperative director serving on the G&T board.
