The basic principle of rate regulation is to establish rates that will produce revenues sufficient to enable a utility an opportunity to recover its reasonable cost of providing service, including a fair rate of return on its investment devoted to utility service. A fair rate of return will allow the utility to meet stakeholder obligations and continue to attract capital.
Federal, state, and local governments regulate public utilities to ensure that they provide an equitable level of service at a fair price. There is no guarantee that the utility will get the authorized rate of return, it is simply an opportunity for the utility to earn its allowed rate of return.
The primary responsibility for rates and ratemaking lies with utility management. Once rates are established, the primary responsibility of management is to ensure that rates remain fair and appropriate by managing costs associated with weather, changes in demand, increases in costs for labor and material, and other unforeseen expenses.
