  • Abstract

    One in a series of studies on customer response to utility regulatory pricing in early 1975, the Oklahoma demonstration project was carried out by the Federal Energy Administration (FEA), the city of Edmond, Central State University, C.H. Guernsey and Company, and the Center for Economic and Management Research at the University of Oklahoma. The project spanned one year from 1977 to 1978. The study, also titled the Electricity Rate Study or Electric Demonstration Project, was an experiment to generate and analyze data on the effects of peak-load pricing on residential electricity consumption. The experimental design featured four non-traditional rate structures: time of day rates, flat rates, seasonal rates, and a combination of seasonal and time-of-day rates. Four sets of data resulted from the demonstration: questionnaire survey data from customers, utility load reports, weather data, and customer usage records. (No summary demographic information exists.) Only data from the post-experimental customer questionnaire survey are available in this data collection.
  • Methods

    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..
