Summary
One in a series of studies on customer response to utility regulatory pricing in early 1975, the Rhode Island demonstration project was carried out by the Federal Energy Administration (FEA) and the Blackstone Valley Electric Company from 1977 to 1978. The study was originally titled the Rhode Island Time of Use Rate Experiment and was conducted to generate and analyze data on the effects of peak-load pricing on residential electric consumption. The experimental design featured a seasonally differentiated time of day rate. Three sets of data resulted from the demonstration: questionnaire survey of the customers, summary demographic information, and customer usage records. All three sets are available in this data collection. Part 1 contains post-experimental customer survey responses. Part 5 contains hourly electricity consumption data for the 28 days of the experiment, along with identifying information that links such data to the pertinent customer/participant's demographic data in Part 2....
