This paper discusses the development of alternative power-based tariff structures for small customers and presents a pathway for adapting one new structure. Development of new tariff structures are needed when actively responding to the future changes in the operating environment of the electricity distribution. In this paper, the studied tariff structures were a power-based tariff structure based on a cost-causation principle and a power-based tariff structure with power and time limits. The customer specific relative and absolute changes in the annual electricity distribution fees were analysed and by emphasizing the customer acceptance an acceptable pathway was created.
