Title

Expansion to the Scope of Cost of Service Study (B)

Explanation

Willdan Financial Services made a presentation on the Cost of Service study to the Utility Advisory Board (UAB) at their February 8, 2018 meeting. At the conclusion of the presentation the UAB requested that the City Commission consider an expansion to the scope of service of Willdan’s contract to include development of electric rate structure alternatives that will:

                     Benefit residential economically disadvantaged customers

                     Promote conservation

 

Fiscal Note

The price proposed by Willdan for the expanded scope of service is:

 

                     $63,100 if GRU is able to provide sufficient information regarding economically disadvantaged customers. Such information would include historic consumption and billing data, energy efficiency  of housing stock etc.

 

                     $82,100 if Willdan is required to generate this data, using customer surveys and working in cooperation and coordination with outside agencies serving the target population.

 

Recommendation:

The City Commission authorize expanding the Cost of Service Study  scope of services with Willdan Financial Services to include development of electric rate structure alternatives that will benefit residential economically disadvantaged customers and structures that will promote conservation.
