In addition, we have also created a dashboard for dozens of utilities throughout Canada.
These free, interactive Rates Dashboards are designed to assist utility managers and local officials to compare and analyze water and wastewater rates against multiple characteristics, including utility finances, system characteristics, customer base socioeconomic conditions, geography, and history.
The Financial Sustainability and Rates Dashboards are tools designed and produced by the Environmental Finance Center as part of projects to annually survey and analyze rates data from different states. Rates data are collected from nearly all local governments (and sometimes investor-owned) utilities in many of these states. Other products from the rates analyses include annual reports and tables of rates across the state, and copies of the hundreds of rate sheets analyzed. All of this information is provided free of charge on our website.
The rates surveys are conducted in partnership with various agencies in different states.
