Streamline - Winter 2017 - 34

may not make the world "go-round,"
but it does make utilities go-round. By
setting up the RATES Program, your
association cut straight to the problem -
getting enough money and doing it fairly.
But, they didn't set up the RATES
Program and then walk away. They
monitor the communications, work,
results and fees of the rate analyst (me).
If I mess up, they fire me. After 269 rate
analyses, to-date, that has yet to happen
and my intent is for it to never happen.

Within the next five years, your utility
will probably need rate analysis. It probably needs a lot more revenue right now.
And, your ratepayers deserve fairlystructured rates. Rate analysis is the
best first step to fixing those problems.
So, do this: Talk to the association.
Tell them your situation. Ask them if
they think you need rate analysis. If
so, call us. We will be glad to get you
into great rates and add your "stats" to
those above.

But don't worry. To us, you will never
be just a set of statistics.
