Big Rivers Electric Corporation
Focused Management Audit

Concentric Energy Advisors has completed its focused management and operations audit of Big Rivers Electric Corporation (“Big Rivers”). The public version of the report is available below.

Big Rivers is a member-owned not-for-profit generation and transmission rural electric cooperative organized pursuant to KRS Chapter 279. Big Rivers is in transition from having a total system load of roughly 1,500 MW, with 850 MW consumed by two aluminum smelters, to a total system load of 650 MW after the departure of the smelters.

In April 2014, the Kentucky Public Service Commission (PSC) ordered that a focused management audit be conducted of the strategic planning, management, and decision-making of Big Rivers relating to its efforts in mitigating the effects of the loss of the smelter load. An RFP was issued and Concentric Energy Advisors was selected to conduct the review.

An action plan addressing the findings and recommendations made by Concentric Energy Advisors was completed in December 2015. The PSC will monitor the implementation of the action plan until all of the recommended actions have been completed.
