Abstract

Armadillo Power & Light Company (AP&L), headquartered in Hondo (TX), provides electric service to the lower half of the Lone Star State. AP&L is a wholly owned subsidiary of Texas Power Corporation, an electric utility holding company. The General Accounting (GA) Department of AP&L is primarily responsible for closing the company books on a monthly basis. After the books are closed, GA is responsible for providing senior management with data relating to key operating results. This data includes a comparative income statement, analysis of rate of return on common equity, analysis of operating revenues and megawatt hours (MWH) sales (as shown in Figure 1), analysis of sources and disposition of energy, and analysis of operation and maintenance expenses by function.
