Notice Description

  Randomized Control Trial and Experimental Design Expertise: Consumer Behaviour

The Ontario Energy Board (OEB) has undertaken a comprehensive review of the Regulated Price Plan (RPP), which sets electricity prices for households and small businesses. As part of the review, the OEB is committed to undertaking price and non-price pilots to provide further information to develop new approaches and understand the business cases for different pricing structures and non-price tools to improve customer response and energy literacy. This would be accomplished through the use of statistically rigorous randomized and controlled experimental designs for estimating impacts and benefits.

The objective of the Randomized Control Trial and Experimental Design Services: Consumer Behaviour Studies project is to provide the OEB with technical assistance in the design, implementation and evaluation of cost-effective pilot programs. The Board wishes to ensure that all pilots undertaken employ statistically robust experimental methods so that the studies can provide greater clarity on the effectiveness of price and non-price tools. Participating electricity distribution companies will be responsible for conducting evaluations and publicly reporting the results of their pilot(s). The OEB will expect the evaluations to include an analysis on impacts on peak demand, total electricity use and consumer acceptance and retention. In addition, the OEB envisions that pilots will incorporate a variety of surveys to get a better sense of the customers participating from a socio-economic perspective, but also to gauge their level of energy literacy over time. The OEB will evaluate the pilot results with a view to implementing cost effective, high value pilots for province-wide implementation.
