Title: Imputed outage costs under a proposed curtailable rate program in Taiwan

Abstract

The implementation of a curtailable rate program through an appropriately designed menu, mainly determined by the customer's outage costs, is one feasibly solution to a power shortage problem. In Taiwan, this issue is particularly important because currently Taiwan is facing a shortage of power generation supply in the summer peak period. In this paper, the authors conducted a survey to examine the market acceptance for the proposed curtailable rate menu and investigated customers' imputed outage costs in relation to their attributes. The survey results show that the imputed outage costs range from $2.25/KW to $3.14/KW and a potentiality of 5.6% to 18.1% of high-tension power peak load supply of the surveyed customers could be curtailed. The economic implications of the research results are presented and further research is recommended.
