Utilities Consultants

For more than 70 years, Jackson Thornton Utilities, a division of Jackson Thornton, has provided services to utilities across the Southeast. More than a 15 years ago, Jackson Thornton Utilities Consultants was created to provide our clients with cost of service studies, rate design, financial modeling and forecasting, strategic planning and internal control evaluation. Our professionals have years of real-world, utility-specific financial and economic development experience at the state and national levels.

To keep our clients up-to-date on the latest changes in the industry, our utility consultants continue to expand our professional knowledge as well as our services to electric, water/sewer, natural gas and telecommunications/broadband providers. With offices in Montgomery, Alabama and Nashville, Tennessee, we’re uniquely positioned among business consulting firms to help utilities throughout the Southeast.

It’s easy for a utility to get lost in endless government requirements, administrative procedures and uphill efforts to protect the bottom line. To know – and go – in the right direction, to expand your horizons, takes someone who knows the territory.

For expert utility consulting, call JTUC today at 334.834.7660 or email utilities@jacksonthornton.com to put our experience to work for your utility.
