GLRPPR Sector Resource: Building Better Water Rates for an Uncertain World

Title:
Building Better Water Rates for an Uncertain World

Abstract:
Water ratemaking is a complex analytical endeavor composed of many building blocks, each of which needs to be addressed before a utility can model and select a successful rate structure. Such critical steps as demand forecasting, carrying out a cost of service analysis, determining revenue requirements, and identifying objectives cannot be undervalued. Only after completing them can rate setters undertake the exercise -- or art -- of designing a rate structure and evaluating it against multiple scenarios to determine its effectiveness. Building Better Water Rates for an Uncertain World provides the background and concepts needed to develop, evaluate, and implement an effective rate structure. It provides the latest thinking, guidance and real world examples on the following topics: -- Ratemaking Principles and Concepts -- Steps for Building a Better (Efficiency-Oriented) Rate Structure -- Implementing an Efficiency-Oriented Rate Structure -- Public Engagement and Communications -- Financial Policies and Planning for Improved Fiscal Health
