Ratemaking is a major regulatory function that touches all aspects of utility operations. It also has wide-ranging ramifications for the different objectives that state utility regulators try to achieve.
Traditional ratemaking which is referred to as “Rate of Return (ROR) ratemaking”, or “Cost-of-Service Regulation” has been a mainstay of state public utility regulation since its inception.
However, over time, state utility commissions have modified ROR ratemaking to accommodate changes in the regulatory ratemaking landscape such as volatility in fuel prices, changing public policy mandates, incentives to deploy new technologies, changes in environmental conditions, competition, customer choice and numerous other factors which have called for the use alternative ratemaking mechanisms instead of traditional ROR ratemaking practices. Although ROR ratemaking is still prominent in the regulatory landscape, alternative ratemaking mechanisms now occupy a greater role in the current and ever-changing regulatory environment.
This training will systemically discuss the various alternatives to traditional ratemaking which regulators utilize to set rates for cost recovery while addressing an ever-changing regulatory environment.
