Summary
One in a series of studies on customer response to utility regulatory pricing in early 1975, the Arkansas demonstration project was carried out by the Federal Energy Administration (FEA), the Arkansas Public Service Commission, and Torche Ross and Company, spanning 12 months from February 1976 to January 1977. The study was originally titled the Arkansas Demand Management Study and was an experiment to generate and analyze data on the effects of peak-load pricing on residential electricity consumption. The experimental design featured a time of day peak-load pricing test as well as a seasonal pricing test. 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. The questionnaire survey data in Part 1 consists of information gathered from a post experimental survey that includes both control and experimental customers. 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
