Water Tariff and Pricing

In Egypt, the majority of the development, operation and maintenance costs of water services are funded by public sources. Primary financing of the water sector comes only through three principal sources: Sovereign sources and general-tax system; agricultural user-fees; and municipal and industrial user-fees (FEEM 2007). Water pricing has not been an acceptable option by the majority of the population in Egypt, but this may be slowly changing. Whereas sharing costs, especially for new development projects, is more acceptable. Different scenarios were introduced recently for cost-recovery of irrigation water. Capital costs are ...
through a piped network to its customers. The term is also often applied to wastewater tariffs. Water and wastewater tariffs are not charged for water itself, but to recover the costs of water treatment , water storage, transporting it to customers, as well as collecting and treating wastewater . Prices paid for water itself also exist in a few countries and are called water abstraction charges or fees. Abstraction charges are not covered in this article, but in the article on water pricing ).

CARPE DIEM: Apple iPhone: Designed in U.S., Assembled in China
Turn over your iPhone and you'll see that it's "assembled in China." But that doesn’t mean that most of the profits or revenue go there. In fact, only about $6.54 (a little more than than 1%) of the full $600 retail price of an iPhone goes to China and more than 60% goes directly to Apple and other American companies and then indirectly to American workers (see chart above), according to a recent "teardown report" by iSuppli that was featured in a New York Times article yesterday .  If you follow the supply chain for the Apple iPhone 4 , you'll find that it was:  market research, surveys and trends


MACAU DAILY TIMES - User-pays water pricing on the way
The Government will set progressive charging for residential water consumption and two pricing categories for commercial and industrial water use, but residents will make the decision regarding some of the finer details of the system.

Director of the Maritime Administration (CP), Susana Wong, told reporters the new water pricing would be set up from January 2011. Progressive charging for residential use will work on a quota basis, and three consumption quotas will be ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Across the country there is wide variation in use and price for water consumption in major urban areas, with residential rates being lowest in the Great Lakes region, according to a Circle of Blue survey.

Key Tool in EU Clean Energy Boom Will Only Work in US in Local Contexts
Both Germany and Spain are global leaders in clean energy development, thanks to a financing mechanism called feed-in tariffs, applied at the national level. Essentially the government guarantees solar and wind energy developers a premium price for the energy they produce, so that they can compete with cheaper, dirtier sources of power. The extra cost of the clean power shows up on every citizen's electric bill as a small increment. Everyone pays in common to support the transition to clean energy, a national priority enshrined in feed-in tariff law. Thanks to feed-in tariffs, renewable energy use in Germany jumped at a ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Water & Sanitation: Establishing Pricing Policy
The determination of price of the service for a particular segment of the customer profile may vary according to the objectives of the utility, political and social criteria. It is usually better if these criteria are transparent. Increasing block tariffs (IBT)—often called ‘lifeline’ or ‘social’ tariffs—are often created with the intent of protecting the poor. Under an IBT, the first block of water used (usually 15-25 cubic meters) is provided to a household at a low price, often below the cost of service provision. Households that use a larger volume of water face higher prices per cubic meter. ...
