One Water demand management: rethinking ratemaking
MetadataShow full item record
Many cities in the U.S. are experiencing population growth, causing water demand to grow and straining existing water supplies and infrastructure. Demand management offers opportunities for water utility rate structures to support the One Water approach, also known as integrated water management. ISE’s analysis in One Water Demand Management: Rethinking Ratemaking: - Helps water utilities to assess the interplay between ratemaking, water demand, and water conservation. - Advances consideration of equity for low-income customers in the new rate structure presented. - Presents a new rate structure case study for New Braunfels Utilities (NBU) in Texas to simultaneously increase revenue, encourage water demand management, and maintain equity.
This report describes work done with New Braunfels Utilities by the Boston University Institute for Sustainable Energy. The work was carried out as part of a broad initiative on One Water opportunities in Texas funded by the Cynthia and George Mitchell Foundation.
