Long Run Incremental Cost

A foreseen, future change in the incremental cost to a company, which is the cost of a company producing one more unit of a product. Long run incremental costs are likely changes to the inputs of making a product, such as the cost of raw materials. For example, if making a product requires a significant amount of oil, and oil prices are thought to be likely to decline, the long run incremental cost is also likely to decline. While there is no guarantee that the long run incremental cost will change in the exact amount expected, attempting to calculate it helps a company make future investment decisions.

The Commission has also discussed different methodologies for calculating costs, which include said evaluation methods, as well as the LRIC (long-run incremental cost) method, which bases its calculation on long-term differential costs, and the FDC (fully distributed cost) method, which takes into account all the costs affected by the operator's profits.
