EPIC recently released a publicly-available model that calculates the effect that a range of pending public policy measures would have on electricity rates. The model, which was developed by a team of leading California energy consultants, calculates changes in rates due to increased renewable energy use, electric vehicles, energy efficiency, and distributed solar photovoltaics, among other variables. It allows users to change many of the inputs and to test the effect of different combinations of policies.
To demonstrate the model and to review results, the model developer will be available to answer specific questions about the model structure and the assumptions used.
The workshop will be useful for a general audience that is interested in learning about the future of electric rates in the San Diego region and those who are more interested in learning how to use the model.
