A Model for Pricing Interruptible Electric Power Service
The current allocation of electric energy is based on a system of fixed prices. In such a system the gap between marginal cost of energy generation and the marginal value of energy consumption, hence the resulting inefficiency, is quite large . One scheme that closes this gap is that of spot pricing, , , .
