Quantitative estimates of the internal cost savings to be derived from changes in the pricing of electric power are devised and evaluated. The econometric literature on electricity demand is surveyed, and elasticity values are selected which are parameters for the overall benefit measures. A method for using reported utility data to estimate the cost of delivered power--at the system peak and off the system, and for each customer class--is devised. Data on five electric utilities is used to make estimates of the potential benefits from improvements in the pricing of electric power, for each customer class in each system. The estimated potential benefits are sufficiently large to merit load curve studies by block for residential customers. Such studies are necessary preliminaries to a definitive assessment of the proposals for so called inversion.
