Title: New Metering Enables Simplified and More Efficient Rate Structures

Abstract

More sophisticated metering and communications technologies are now economically feasible for many more customers, allowing for rate designs that provide improved economic efficiency, transparency, simplicity and fairness, and allow customers to make efficient energy choices. Add the imperatives of the Energy Policy Act of 2005, and it may be time for utilities to assess upgrades to their metering and communications infrastructure and their rate structures.
