Perspective from Cooperative Power
Future of Rate Design
Energy Efficiency Solutions
It's not news that power systems across the United States are experiencing an upheaval. With the greater deployment of energy efficiency, renewable energy and distributed resources, as well as different usage patterns and customer demands, today's grid is struggling to perform to our expectations.
Transitioning to a more modern electrical grid will require changes to the pricing structures used by electric utilities, moving beyond the traditional two-part rate with its roots in the nineteenth century.

Evidence from Florida
We examine the impacts of dynamic pricing on conservation and load shifting in the hot and humid climate of Florida. We then compare the results to those from dynamic pricing experiments across the world. Our evaluation is based on the Energy Smart Florida pilot study, which was run by Florida Power and Light, the third-largest electric utility in the United States.
