How do your rates rate?

June 30, 2021

Water and wastewater rate studies are a Raftelis core service, so we get asked, “What is everyone else doing on rates?” A lot. For California and Nevada utilities we have a fresh set of answers for you. Raftelis partnered with the California-Nevada Section of the American Water Works Association to develop the 2020 California-Nevada Water Rate Survey and Dashboard, which you can access here (you will be required to set up a username and password, but do not need to be a member to access the tool). The survey is a powerful web-based tool for utilities throughout California and Nevada to conduct high-level comparative benchmarking of water rates with other agencies in the region. Not in California or Nevada? Utility finance experts should still check this out. This region of the country has some of the most innovative rate structures you’ll see in our industry.
