EMA Immediate Past President Robert Knoedler, PE, CxA, EMP, is leading a course by AESP on Utility Rate Structures and Analysis on August 30th.

This training will review various terminology and electrical rate structures commonly used by utility companies around the country.  They will discuss the various charges associated with electric bills, how to audit to verify charges and work on several sample calculations.

They will discuss the use of ‘blended’ electrical rates, often used in energy savings calculations by energy managers, and show where these are valid and where more detailed calculations should be employed. They will briefly discuss forecasting future energy costs utilizing the government’s Energy Escalation Rate Calculator (EERC). Finally, they will discuss the use of renewable energy microgrids and their role in increasing resilience and the utility rate structures that have the greatest effect on the value of photovoltaic systems.

After taking this course, you will be able to:

  • Define terms associated with electrical rate structures
  • Explain the use of blended electrical rates
  • Utilize the Energy Escalation Rate Calculator (EERC)
  • Discuss the use of renewable energy microgrids
