The California Public Utilities Commission regulates the rates of all natural gas utilities in the state. The form of regulation is dependent, in large part, on whether the utility is viewed as an incumbent with monopoly power, or as a competitive entity with lack of market power. While the former will be assessed cost of service rates, the latter may be authorized to charge market-based rates.

Goodin MacBride’s experience in the area of rate regulation primarily comes on two fronts – obtaining and retaining market-based rates for competitive natural gas utilities, and assuring that the rates of the incumbent investor-owned utilities are not structured in a manner which affords them an unfair competitive advantage.
