1993b) is chosen as a specification of the electricity expenditure function for households. An LA/AIDS 3 Consumer Response to Critical Peak Pricing of Electricity … 30 model, which has been widely applied in empirical studies, is flexible in the sense that there are no restrictions on substitution. Another attractive feature of an LA/AIDS model is that the underlying structures associated with an indirect utility function are known and a theoretically consistent measurement of welfare is possible.

Specifically, for household i on day t, the expenditure share for the peak period, Sp,i,t, is given by     À Á pp;i;t Yi;t Sp;i;t ¼ ap þ a1 REQi;t þ bpp þ a2 DHi log þ hp log þ xt þ vi þ ui;t po;i;t Pi;t ð3:2Þ where REQi,t: dummy variable equal to 1 if household i receives a conservation request on day t, DHi: dummy variable equal to 1 if household i received an HER before the third or last experiment, xt: time fixed effects, vi: household fixed effects, and ui,t: error term. The denominator of Yi,t in Eq.

The estimation results of the daily time-of-day electricity consumption model indicate statistically significant and persistent effects of IHD use on residential electricity consumption. The increase in IHDs’ effects along with households’ experience of using IHDs implies that households’ capacity to process information could be improved by the repetition of attention to electricity information. Contrary to the energy-conservation literature, IHD usage was found to consistently increase residential electricity consumption because of a boomerang effect.
