2019 NARUC Utility Rate School - May

May 12 - 17, 2019

The basics of utility ratemaking are presented by program faculty members from state public utility commissions, utility companies, and the legal, consulting, and academic communities. Participants work in teams to learn the fundamentals of establishing revenue requirements and rate setting by working through a hypothetical “mock” water utility rate case. The program also provides insight into current issues affecting the water and other utility industries.
