Time-Based and Optional Rates At A Glance

Capabilities and Services

In many regions, retail electricity markets that were moving toward deregulation are now in a state of suspended animation, while utilities and their customers are often still exposed to volatile wholesale market prices. Rate designs that provide economic signals and choice to customers can bring some of the benefits of competition to a regulated setting and improve system reliability, while enhancing shareholders' risk-adjusted return. NERA brings together the breadth of capabilities and experience needed to accomplish these goals.

NERA has advised clients on rate design and regulatory strategy since the firm's inception, and is a recognized leader in this field. NERA staff have supported clients at all stages of the process of design, implementation, and evaluation of rates.
