Inaugural 2020 Pricing Interest Group Meeting +
Findings from the Maryland Time-of-Use Pricing Pilots 

DATE / TIME: Thursday, December 1, 12:30 to 1:30 pm EST

Hosted by the Retail Pricing Interest Group


Join us for the inaugural 2020 meeting of PLMA's Retail Pricing Interest Group, and learn about the findings of the TOU pilots to date. 

As part of the Maryland Public Service Commission’s PC44 proceedings, the Maryland Utilities designed time-of-use (TOU) pilots in a collaborative process. The PC44 pilots included several unique features, such as separately measuring the impact of TOU rates on LMI and non-LMI customers and providing detailed bill impact information to the customers during the recruitment stage. The pilots are scheduled to run through May 31, 2021.

PLMA's guest speaker for this HOT TOPIC is Dr. Sanem Sergici, a principal in The Brattle Group’s Boston, MA office and an expert in electricity markets and applied econometrics. Dr. Sergici brings extensive background in the assessment of these pilots.

About the Retail Pricing Interest Group

The PLMA Retail Pricing Interest Group seeks to examine a variety of demand response, energy efficiency, and other system retail pricing rates and programs, independent of any specific technology or solution. It will collect and selectively share summaries, excerpts, and/or full text from published, and not-so-public documentation, including utility pilots and program evaluations, plus reports and white papers that cover rates/program evaluations, program design concepts, market assessments, savings potential, and more.
