About Us:

J. Pollock Incorporated—located in St. Louis County, MO—is an independently owned consulting firm that assists clients in procuring and managing electricity and natural gas in competitive and regulated markets. We work on behalf of our clients, not the utilities, energy suppliers, and marketers. Our clients are energy-intensive consumers from various manufacturers, commercial interests, hospitals, schools, and public institutions. 

J. Pollock advises clients on a wide range of energy and regulatory issues. We have participated in numerous projects involving investor-owned, municipal, cooperative, and government-owned utilities across the U.S. and several Canadian Provinces. This includes providing expert testimony in regulatory, legislative, and judicial proceedings on utility revenue requirements, jurisdictional and class cost-of-service studies, and rate design. These issues involve in-depth analysis and knowledge of accounting, economics, engineering, finance, natural gas/electricity markets, regulatory policies, procedures, and precedent. We also conduct audits, market assessments, price forecasts, and RFPs to assist clients in buying energy in competitive retail markets.
