Assessment Topic

Consolidated rates or single-tariff pricing is the use of a unified rate structure for multiple water (or other) utility systems that are owned and operated by a single utility, but that may or may not be contiguous or physically interconnected. The purpose of this report is to provide policymakers and other stakeholders with an overview of consolidated ratemaking and an appreciation of the complex trade-offs involved in its implementation.
The report provides a review of historical, theoretical, and practical issues related to consolidated ratemaking, implementation data, and key decisions by the state public utility commissions. A detailed survey of state public utility commission staff regarding single-tariff pricing is presented. General commission policies are summarized, along with citations of specific regulatory decisions concerning single-tariff pricing.
