With funding support from the United States Agency International Development (USAID), the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) seeks to develop two primers on specific elements of cost-based ratemaking. The primers will form the basis for a multi-year project by NARUC to create a tool kit designed for policymakers, regulators, and utilities to complement USAID’s efforts to encourage cost-based rates.
