Partnership Exchange on Rate Regulation and Public Information

Date: August 2011
Location: Batumi, Georgia

With the support of the US Agency for International Development, the Georgia National Energy and Water Regulatory Commission engaged with Kentucky regulators on rate regulation, with a special emphasis on depreciation and cost of service; deregulation in the US; water supply and connection; and consumer services. Participants also discussed public information, with particular interest paid to Kentucky’s electronic recordkeeping and data management.

In addition, the participants visited the water pumping station and water reservoirs of the Batumi Water Company and the hydro power plant "ATSI" on the Acharitskali River.
