Tip: S&P Market Intelligence has a template library. If you are looking to get FF1 financials for just one company, you can use the FERC Form 1 Financial and Operating Details templates. If you are looking to draw a comparison between a number of companies, use the Peer Comparison. Please note that you will need to get the Market Intelligence Office Excel add-in to be able to update the data in the template.
