Review of e3 avoided costs l.jpg
Review of E3 Avoided Costs

  • Background

  • Overview of the Methodology

  • Valuation of Peak Hours

  • Utility-specific Data

Avoided cost objectives l.jpg
Avoided Cost Objectives

  • Goals:

    • Provide objectively derived estimates of avoided costs that are suitable for evaluating PUC funded programs

    • Develop a transparent and repeatable costing methodology that does not rely on either proprietary data or models

  • Deliverables:

    • Transparent and defensible avoided cost methodology

      • Separate presentations with proposals for each cost component

      • Make use of existing studies and data to the extent possible

    • Provide software to update estimates of avoided costs

    • Provide a report describing methodology, results, and data to support estimates

The New Costing Framework

200?: 2.84% * $60.00/MWh = $1.70/MWh of load

A s cost computation l.jpg
A/S Cost Computation

  • Average of A/S costs as share of total energy costs, during non-crisis period (8/99-5/00, 8/01-7/03): 2.84%

  • Apply 2.84% to shaped hourly energy price

    • 2004: 2.84% * $45.57/MWh = $1.29/MWh of load

    • 2005: 2.84% * $46.65/MWh = $1.32/MWh of load

A/S Costs are the same multiplier for the entire state.

Calculation of the pcafs is based on load duration curve of each area l.jpg
Calculation of the PCAFs is based on Load Duration Curve of Each Area

Load Duration Curve

PCAF weights are assigned proportionally to how high the load is compared to the peak.

Only highest load hours (top standard deviation) receive any weight.
