This foundational course is designed around the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) Uniform System of Accounts (USoA), covering every relevant FERC account. Review the proper usage of each account, the role of accounting in public utilities, preparation of FERC-based income statements and balance sheets, the supporting charts of accounts, and proper coding for all FERC account activities. Learn about the role of accounting in public utilities, FERC accounting procedures, the uniform systems of accounts, and utility accounting subsystems.
