Governance in a changing market : the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power by Walter S. Edelman, Edmund Baer( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deregulation, competition, and industry restructuring are changing the production and delivery of electric power in the United States, both for investor-owned and municipally owned utilities. The largest U.S. municipal utility, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (DWP), asked RAND to consider possible changes in governance that could improve its decisionmaking and operations while maintaining public ownership. The authors found that the DWP would benefit from simplification and streamlining, whether or not the city's electricity market is opened to competition, which many business, labor, and government stakeholders view as inevitable. The report delineates three governance options for DWP: a city-owned corporation, an independent city agency with a strong governing board, and modifications of the existing departmental structure. While the final decision is up to the Los Angeles city council and ultimately the voters, this report is intended to stimulate informed public discussion and debate

British industrial response to peak-load pricing of electricity by Rand Corporation( Book )

4 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This examination of customer responsiveness to peak-load, or time-of-use (TOU), electricity tariffs focuses on responses by individual industrial customers in England and Wales and relies on in-person interviews with representatives of firms. The design of peak-load tariffs depends on the projected extent of customer response, and if peak demands are reduced by TOU pricing, then less aggregate generating and transmission capacity will be needed to meet the load, operating costs will be reduced, and savings to both the customers and the utility system will result. The British experience is suggestive of one pattern of long-run adjustment to TOU pricing. The report examines the likelihood of a similar pattern of response in the United States and other advanced countries

The Los Angeles senior citizen lifeline electricity rate by Timothy J Sullivan( Book )

3 editions published between 1978 and 1979 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Los Angeles' experience in providing low-cost electricity for its low-income elderly. Introduced in 1975, the program covers over 89,000 households--80 percent of the estimated eligibles--where the head is at least 62 and annual taxable income is under $7500. It offers a 50 percent discount on the first 360 kwh of bimonthly consumption, which at current prices means an average $10 discount per household every two months. The special rate has stimulated approximately 429,000 kwh of additional electricity use bimonthly among the eligible population. But because rates were raised by 1.8 percent for other residential users to pay for the subsidy, their use fell 2,700,000 kwh/two months, a net reduction in total residential use. Analysis of lifeline consumption patterns shows (1) many lifeline households consume very little electricity; (2) small quantity consumers do not necessarily have low incomes; and (3) low income consumers do not necessarily use small quantities of electricity
Do time-of-use rates change load curves? by Jan Paul Acton( Book )

3 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Utilities and regulators need to know what, if any, effect time-of-use (TOU) rates will have on electricity loads. The question raises serious methodological challenges because no means of measurement is perfect. The authors explore these difficulties and then apply alternative measures to actual load data drawn from European and United States utility systems. They find wide variability in responsiveness to TOU rates from one industry to another and between utility systems, depending on the method used and the length of time rates have been in effect. They conclude that TOU rates clearly change load shapes but are uncertain whether United States utilities will ever see the degree of response found in European data. Published in [Public] [Utilities Fortnightly], May 22, 1980, following several articles that have taken exception to earlier work by RAND authors on this subject
