Abstract

Pricing is the primary process by which water utilities recover costs. Unfortunately, costing and rate design practices in the water industry lag behind practices in other public utility sectors. This article focuses on water rate innovations, with emphasis on the integration of marginal cost and traditional average cost pricing. Pricing and costing developments in other public utility sectors are discussed in relation to their applicability to water utilities. Determinando precios es el proceso primario que utilidades de agua usan para recuperar costos. Desgraciadamente, costos y prácticas de diseño de precios en la indústria de aguas son postergados en relación a otros sectores de utilidades públicas. Este artículo enfoca inovaciones de precios de agua, con enfásis en la integración de costo marginal y precio de costos promedios y tradicionales. Desarolles de precios y costos en otros sectores de utilidades públicas son discutidas en relación a sus aplicabilidades a utilidades de agua.
