Rates Workshop

June 30, 2022
The Grove Hotel

Who Should Attend:

General managers, CEOs, CFOs, policymakers, customer service managers, communications managers, and anyone interested in the ratemaking process.

Workshop Overview:

Many elements drive modern rate policy, strategy, design, and structure. New technology, strain on system operations from peak loads, increased costs, economic hardship, distributed energy resources, and enhanced customer engagement with the utility are just some of the rates factors that can be considered. As utilities increasingly adopt a variety of programs, knowing where to start and what to implement can be a challenge. Join us for this one-day workshop to learn from industry experts, hear how other utilities have approached these challenges, and compare notes on what they have done to implement new programs. Among the topics being considered are strategies and approaches on:

  • Subscription/pre-pay plans
  • Time-of-use and tiered rates
  • Demand charges
  • Low income dynamics
  • Vehicle charging: residential, transit, and commercial
  • Commercial demand response
  • Distributed energy resources
  • Review of recent rates survey work
  • Please note that throughout the workshop, care will be taken to discuss and display only information that conforms with NWPPA’s Antitrust Policy in strict compliance with all federal and state antitrust laws, rules, and regulations.

    Workshop Schedule:

    Registration will begin at 8 a.m., and the workshop will run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Mountain Time. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
