Africa/Middle East: Zambia

Partnership Exchange on Development of Tariffs, and License Renewals Standards and Processes

Date: July 2005
Location: Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

During this activity, with the support of United States Agency for International Development (USAID), members of the Energy Regulatory Board of Zambia traveled to Pennsylvania to meet with the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission to discuss filing requirements of a rate case, universal service programs for low- income consumers, license renewal standards and processes, among other topics. They also went on several site visits to increase their understanding.

Two members of the ERB also completed a three week internship at the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission. All parties found the exchange of information productive.
