Gas and Electric Utility Rate Applications: We will conduct several bill analyses with both gas and electric bills, for several customer groups including residential, commercial, and industrial. Bill calculations will be done with a variety of tariffs to become proficient in bill analyses techniques. Case studies of different bill applications will be used to illustrate the differences among rate tariffs and to apply what was learned to real-life situations. Certain issues will be selected for Case studies by the class. Active participation in debating the merits of those issues will be expected of the participants. We will continue with bill and tariff analysis using actual bill examples. Examples will be selected from participant situations that have been submitted in advance. Depending on time and complexity, several examples will be reviewed. Analysis of bundled compared to unbundled rates will be done using current electric and gas pricing to illustrated the economics of rate design in competitive markets.
