Abstract

A model is developed and estimated that forecasts the share of an electric utility's customers who would switch to a competitor under various price discounts and service attributes (reliability, renewable power, energy conservation assistance, and customer service.) The method builds upon previous double-bounded dichotomous choice procedures, extended to account for the multi-attribute nature of electric power service.
