Independent energy producers and providers are replacing the former “bundled” utilities in a new competitive arena. Deregulation, as determined by individual state regulatory commissions, is creating significant changes in the energy business coast to coast.

WHY OBTAIN AN APPRAISAL OF YOUR POWER PLANT?
Moving power producing assets out of your utility rate base requires them to be sold at fair market value to minimize stranded costs.
FEDERAL TAX AND ACCOUNTING
Allocate the purchase price among facility assets: land, buildings, machinery and intangibles and determine the appropriate depreciation schedules for each asset category.
PROPERTY TAX ANALYSIS
Because of deregulation, both taxpayers and assessors need to know the accurate fair market value of their power plant properties.
Satisfaction of Internal Revenue Service requirements for leased equipment appraisals. In particular, meeting the “20 percent test” for residual value/remaining useful life and determining commercial feasibility. Our analysis is also used for cross-border facility leases.
Proof of loss appraisal for appropriate insurance coverage and claim support.
Determination of residual value at the expiration of the lease term for purchase price negotiations between the lessor and lessee.
