EUCI Time of Use (TOU) and Residential Demand Charges Conference
March 13 @ 8:00 am - March 14 @ 5:00 pm
Rapid changes in the electric utility industry continue to drive utilities to propose new ways of collecting revenues from residential customers. Among these changes are flat or declining electric sales, increased penetration of advanced metering infrastructure, EV adoption and growing numbers of residential customers with rooftop solar. As a result, equity arguments arise because regardless of where you come out on efficient electricity pricing, those prices may not raise enough revenue to cover a utility’s total costs. To make up some of the lost revenue, utilities must get creative with innovative rate offerings.
Does it make sense to offer these new rates as opt-in, opt-out, or mandatory? Should TOU rates be offered with a significant reduction in off-peak rates so customers will have some motivation to reduce and shift peak loads? Should the new rates including a dynamic pricing element, or should they be just plain old TOU rates? Should the new rates include demand charges? If so, should they be based on maximum customer demand or customer’s demand at the time of system peak?
These questions and more will be addressed at EUCI’s annual residential demand charges and TOU conference. 2020 is a milestone year as a new decade begins and there will be a tremendous need for dynamic load flexibility. Conference attendees will take away valuable knowledge and have the opportunity for quality networking with industry peers.
