Following a nation-wide competition beginning in March 2020, Saber Partners, LLC was selected as advisor to the Public Staff of the North Carolina Utilities Commission.

As described on their website, “The Public Staff is an independent agency created in 1977 by legislation in General Statute 62-15 to review, investigate, and make appropriate recommendations to the North Carolina Utilities Commission with respect to the reasonableness of rates charged and adequacy of service provided by any public utility…The Public Staff intervenes on behalf of the using and consuming public in all Commission proceedings affecting rates or service …to provide customers with effective, independent representation based on technical and professional expertise…”

In this highly specialized area of utility securitization finance, Saber Partners, LLC is the leading provider of consulting services to state utility regulators, their staffs and consumer advocates.  This area has been a primary focus of the firm for 20 years.

In that time and through $9 billion of electric utility securitizations in 13 separate public offerings, Saber Partners has efficiently, effectively and swiftly advised seven regulatory commissions, public counsel or their agents. Our advice has saved over $150 million of additional dollars for customers over those proposed by other transaction participants.  Its first transaction required the firm’s current principals to navigate the market upheaval of September 11, 2001.
