Summary
One in a series of studies on customer response to utility regulatory pricing in early 1975, the Wisconsin demonstration project was carried out by the Federal Energy Administration (FEA) and the Wisconsin Public Service Commission (PSC) from 1976 to 1980. The study was originally called the Wisconsin Electricity Consumer Survey and was an experiment to generate and analyze data on the effects of peak-load pricing on residential electric consumption. The experimental design featured nine distinct peak load pricing treatments, a time of day demand treatment, a seasonal flat-rate treatment, and a control group. Six sets of data resulted from the demonstration: questionnaire surveys of the customers (both control and experimental), summary demographic information, utility load reports, weather data, and customer usage records. All six sets (representing the five main parts of the Demonstration Project series) are available in this data collection. Part 1 contains the customer survey response data from 400 control participants, and Part 2 contains the customer survey response data from 399 experimental participants. Data for both parts were gathered in the second only of three survey waves, which was administered in March 1979. Parts 4-6 each contain 28 days of data, with Parts 4 and 6 including hourly data. Parts 4-6 also contain identifying information that links their data to the pertinent customer/participant's demographic data in Part 3
