Summary
One in a series of studies on customer response to utility regulatory pricing in early 1975, the Connecticut demonstration project was carried out by the Federal Energy Administration (FEA), Connecticut Light and Power, the opinion research firm of Yankelovich, Skelly and White, and the Charles River Associates between the years 1975 and 1976. The study was originally titled the Connecticut Off-Peak Pricing Opportunity Study and the Electricity Usage Study and was an experiment to generate and analyze data on the effects of peak-load pricing on residential electric consumption. Household electric consumption data were collected for one year, and the experimental design featured a seasonally differentiated time of day rate. Five sets of data resulted from the demonstration: questionnaire survey of the customers, summary demographic information, utility load reports, weather data, and customer usage records. All five sets are available in this data collection. 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
