Description
  • Abstract

    One in a series of studies on customer response to utility regulatory pricing in early 1975, the Arizona demonstration project was carried out by the Federal Energy Administration (FEA) and the Arizona Public Service Company, beginning in 1975, with an experimental period of six months. The study was originally titled the Time of Day Metering Load Research and was an experiment to generate and analyze data on the effects of peak-load pricing on residential electricity consumption. The experimental design featured 28 time of day rates with varying prices for peak, shoulder, and off-peak periods. Five sets of data resulted from the demonstration: questionnaire survey data from the customers, summary demographic information, utility load reports, weather data, and customer usage records. All five sets are available in this data collection. Although a pre-test survey was conducted, only the post-test data are included in Part 1. Parts 3-5 each contain 28 days of data, with Parts 3 and 5 including hourly data. Parts 3-5 also contain identifying information that links their data to the pertinent customer/participant's demographic data in Part 2.
  • 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..

Geographic Coverage
  • Arizona

  • Yuma
Sampled Universe
The residential customers of the Arizona Public Service Company (APS) in Phoenix and Yuma, excluding those on rate E11 (winter-peaking customers).
Sampling
Simple random probability sampling.
Collection Mode
  • The start dates that are reported in all five parts of the Arizona demonstration are essential variables in the linkage process. These variables, used in conjunction with the utility code, weather station identification, and customer identification, enable the records of Parts 2-5 to be matched and merged or subset. When corrections of data values were made, an updated record was added to the file, but the originally reported data record was retained. In these instances where there are duplicate records for the same reporting period, the second record has the correct data values.
