Talking with the community…on the radio   


Over the past few years, we’ve made a point of reaching out to the communities we serve to have conversations about our energy future. Recently, we had the opportunity to participate in a talk radio show, “Money Management,” on Spokane’s KXLY 920 am ( to share information about the financial side of Avista Corp. Chief Financial Officer Mark Thies and Investor Relations Manager Jason Lang gave listeners a general overview of the corporation, as well as some insight into two of the operating divisions of Avista Corp, namely Avista Utilities and Ecova, our primary unregulated operating division.

On the air.

We’ve provided a link to a recording of the program (audio link) in this posting so you can listen to the conversation Mark and Jason had with host Mike Maehl and Jim Harvey, his partner from the financial consulting firm Opus 111 Group. They talked about topics as wide ranging as Avista’s ranking among the greenest utilities in the country in generating electricity to implementing smart grid technology on our system; from total shareholder return to the dividend yield on Avista common stock. You’ll also be interested to hear about Ecova, which provides energy and sustainability management services to businesses in the Fortune 500.

We encourage you to take about 30 minutes to hear about Avista from some different voices, from those who see our company from the financial perspective. We think you’ll learn a lot and maybe come away from the experience saying, “I didn’t know that!”
