Rate Design for Recovery of Electricity Distribution Costs

Case number

This review intended to consider the need for, and approaches to, changes to distribution rate design in light of industry changes and emerging issues. This includes the commercialization of electricity distributors, developments in metering and increased distributed generation and conservation and demand management activities, among others.

The Board decided to defer completion of this rate design project (EB-2007-0031). See Rate Design for Electricity Distributors (EB-2012-0410) for more information.
