Abstract : This paper briefly presents the results of a study of various utility rate schedules from across the United States and describes a video produced to explain some major features of these rate structures. In particular, the demand, energy and power factor sections of each rate schedule are explored to understand the impacts of selected features on utility costs and on evaluation of energy conservation projects. The accompanying video was produced for the Energy Systems Laboratory's Industrial Assessment Center (IAC) at Texas A&M university. This video will be used during industrial audits to explain typical demand, energy and power factor structures and savings potentials that can be realized by implementation of energy conservation retrofit projects, known as energy conservation opportunities (ECO's), that may be presented through the energy audit process.
