Investing In Farm Worker Housing: A Multi-Season Peak-Load Analysis Of Washington State Data
AbstractThis paper develops cost effective investment rules for farm worker housing and applies the model to farm worker housing in the state of Washington. The state must meet varying seasonal farm worker housing needs at minimum expense. In this study we examine investment rules to choose among different housing technologies in order to minimize the total costs of housing consistent with achieving welfare goals. The research extends existing peak-load models to the multi-season planning cycle case and applies the approach empirically to a new subject area.
