Mark Davidson's approach to practicing in public utilities law has been developed by having represented all facets of utility regulation including utilities, their customers, and the agency that regulates them. He has practiced before regulatory agencies in Colorado, Louisiana, New Mexico, Washington, and Wyoming. As the country moves toward more renewable energy alternatives, his representation of solar and wind energy service providers will be at the forefront of our energy economy both in Colorado and across the nation.
Mark's case work has provided him with invaluable experience. Practicing before several regulatory agencies has given him a unique perspective on the regulatory process and the needs of clients. In addition, his work on the bankruptcy of an electric generation and transmission utility provided valuable insights into what it takes to keep a utility financially viable.
Mark has participated in numerous significant electric utility rate, resource planning, transmission siting, and cost recovery cases in Colorado over the past 35 years.
