Abstract

This study describes the use of area and time specific (ATS) costs to evaluate and develop voluntary rate options to decrease Central Power and Light`s (CP&L) rates and increase margin. The ATS costing methodology, initially developed and implemented by Pacific Gas and Electric Company, is applied to CP&L`s Laredo area, providing the important detailed costing information necessary for the evaluation of CP&L`s margin in Laredo over different time periods. CP&L is one of four utilities in the United States that have developed a full set of ATS costs. CP&L is the first utility to apply these costs to develop profitable rate options. Copyright © 1994 Electric Power Research Institute.
