The utility regulatory landscape has been rapidly evolving over the past decade. At the start of the 2020s utilities were already facing a multitude of pressures when it comes to designing customer-centric rates that ensure long-term profitability. As more regulators look at performance-based rate-making, green tariffs, and time of use rates, utilities must become increasingly creative. What are utilities doing to meet the demands for a more dynamic rate infrastructure? How will COVID-19 and the need to drive affordability impact rate-marking?
