Opportunity: Municipal Utility - Electric Load Management Study

Project type: Economic/Financial Analysis; 

Best Fit: Business, Economics, Finance

Tipton, Iowa has a municipal electric utility.  They have been considering the idea of load management and whether some version of it is financially feasible for the city.  Or, at what point does it make sense for the city?  But so far, no one they have talked to has a methodology that they can point to.  Or, they have asked the question about doing something with solar instead.  The project for the students would be to determine what scenario would make the most economic sense for the city to do.
