ENHANCING YOUR UTILITY'S COMPETITIVE EDGE BY INCORPORATING SUSTAINABILITY
Abstract:For utility managers, sustainability is often viewed as a trade-off between long-term and short-term planning with unfavorable budget impacts.

We begin with an explanation of basic sustainability concepts, and then present examples of two sustainability programs that yield big-dollar benefits.
