Nashville, Tennessee -- The increasing focus on energy conservation by regulators, legislators and customers alike, and the continuing proliferation of distributed generation options including commercial micro-grids and residential roof-top solar is creating a more complex situation for utilities and their ability to tailor pricing solutions for customers. Innovative rate designs may provide remedies to potentially unintended consequences associated with commonly used rate designs. Ideally, rate design balances a number of goals, including utility revenue recovery, providing customers with appropriate incentives, minimizing customer cross-subsidies, and ensuring that rates are not discriminatory.
