Electric Utility Rate Demonstration Project: Vermont, 1975-1976 Archival Version

DOI

One in a series of studies on customer response to utility regulatory pricing in early 1975, the Vermont demonstration project was carried out by the Federal Energy Administration (FEA), the Central Vermont Public Service Corporation, and the University of Vermont, from 1975 to 1976. The study was originally titled Patterns of Electrical Use and was an experiment to generate and analyze data on the effects of peak-load pricing on residential electricity consumption. The experimental design featured various time of day rates. Four sets of data resulted from the demonstration: questionnaire survey data from the customers, utility load reports, weather data, and customer usage records. Only the data from the questionnaire surveys are available in this data collection. Part 1 contains the data collected in the experimental questionnaire survey, and Part 2 contains the data gathered in the control questionnaire survey. ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection: Standardized missing values.; Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.. Residential customers of the Green Mountain Power Company. Stratified random probability sampling. 2006-01-18 File CB7889.ALL.PDF was removed from any previous datasets and flagged as a study-level file, so that it will accompany all downloads.
