E3 helped BC Hydro develop a suite of new conservation-focused rate designs. The large general service rate uses a 2-part design with a customer baseline to mitigate bill impacts while providing a marginal-cost based pricing signal. E3 provided comprehensive assistance and analyses to support development of the rate, from surveying other North American rates, to performing cluster analysis to develop customer segmentation, to calculating bill impacts and conservation effects under alternative designs.
