Revenue impacts are highly speculative. For more detailed modeling, the EFC's Water and Wastewater Rates Analysis Model is a free tool that examines how revenues at your utility could be affected by various changes in rate structures. However, neither of these tools should be used in place of an in-depth rate study.
Assumes across-the-board rate increases for all customer classes. Projected revenue impacts assume a 3 percent drop in demand for every 10 percent increase in price. Accuracy of projections decreases as the proposed rate increase gets larger.

This Rates Dashboard is designed to assist utility managers, finance directors, Board members, local officials, reporters, and customers to compare their utility's residential water and wastewater rates against multiple factors, including system characteristics, customer base demographics, and geography. Users can manually/temporarily input financial data using the Edit Data or Add Utility button to turn on the Cost Recovery dial (on the user’s local machine only – this is cookie based). For financial information on individual utilities, please contact Michael Schrader at Tighe & Bond.

The 2019 Connecticut Water and Wastewater Rates Dashboard and Survey were created by the Environmental Finance Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and funded by Tighe & Bond, Inc. See the link below for more information about Tighe & Bond’s rates work in New England. The Rates Dashboard is updated periodically to provide the most accurate data for decision-making and analysis.
