In most cases, the regulator reviews the operator’s overall price level in.

    The prices regulated utilities charge to provide customers with electricity or natural gas are decided through an open, public process called a rate case. When a pricing adjustment is needed, the utility company files a request with the Oklahoma Corporation Commission, the body that regulates public utilities. Historically, net book cost or rate base have established the fair market value by taking into consideration depreciation. Now, deregulation has caused adjustments to this utility valuation technique resulting in the necessity for companies to reassess previously appraised utilities.

Public Utility Rate Making and the Price Level by Bernstein, E. and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at Additional Physical Format: Online version: Bernstein, Edward M. (Edward Morris), Public utility rate making and the price level. Chapel Hill, The University of North Carolina Press,   Utility ratemaking is the formal regulatory process in the United States by which public utilities set the prices (more commonly known as "rates") they will charge consumers.

Ratemaking, typically carried out through "rate cases" before a public utilities commission, serves as one of the primary instruments of government regulation of public utilities. As long as the rate of return (rr) is above the cost of debt, the rate base can be inflated by spending more capital than necessary.

The rr is almost always well above the cost of debt. If a utility has a capital structure of 50% debt, as regulators encourage, then: rr rd + re. Where: rd = return on debt and re = return on equity. “Utility Ratemaking” is the name of the process that public utilities must go through, by law, to set the rates or prices that they will charge their customers.

The government is better able to regulate public utilities via the ratemaking process, by conducting and investigating rate cases with the state Public Utilities Commission. This chapter focuses of the rate-setting function in public utilities.

The process of setting rates (prices for services) in public utilities involves four steps: (1) determining operating costs, (2) distributing costs among different customer classes, (3) considering relevant load and use factors, and (4) designing the pricing structures that reflect the influences of the first three.
