Utility Rate Analysis and Cost of Service Studies
The most common cause of financial difficulties for small water utilities is the inability to successfully navigate the regulatory environment. Through a proactive approach to rate regulation and participation in the drafting of simplified regulations for water and sewer utilities, Northern Utility Services has gained an understanding of the rate regulation process. As a result, Northern Utility Services has successfully presented and gained RCA approval for utility rate increases, tariff rewrites, utility acquisitions, and rate design changes. Success in these activities is key to maintaining a utility’s financial health, and we have developed the skills and professional network necessary to provide these services at affordable rates. Bottom Line: We have what it takes to bring your utility to financial health!
