and gas utilities. The authors would also like to thank the members of the project advisory working group, including both utility and regulatory staff, for
their support and substantive contributions. The members, in addition to Dale
Brugger (who serves as chair), include the following: Jeff Ford ( Madison Gas
and Electric); Julie Plath, Lori Drilling, and Linda Zeits (Northern States
Power -- Wisconsin); Judy Matthewson, Jeff Morrow, and Luc Piessens (Wisconsin Gas Company); Melinda Ferraro, Laura Bolton, and Kurt Kiefer (Wisconsin Power & Light); Paul Wozmiak ( Wisconsin Public Service Company); Craig Schepp (Wisconsin Public Power Inc., SYSTEM); Dave Gapinski (Wisconsin Natural Gas); and Ralph Prahl ( Public Service Commission of Wisconsin).
