Global Best Practices in Residential Electric Rate Design


Regulatory Assistance Project
Jim Lazar

This presentation discusses RAP’s published papers on rate design, the first two of which seek to identify examples of creative and forward-looking rate design from around the world. It is part of the RAP Global Best Practices series, which also looks at resource planning, finance, and other topics. All the publications focus on the need to align rates with long-run marginal costs, so consumers make good long-run choices.
