Cost Effectiveness Reporting
Total Resource Cost (TRC) *
(*) This test compares benefits to society as a whole (avoided supply-side cost benefits, additional resource savings benefits) with the participant’s cost of installing the measure plus the cost of energy efficiency program administration (non-incentive costs). Incentives are considered a transfer payment from program to the participant and thus are not explicitly accounted for in the calculation.
Program Administrator Cost (PAC) *
(*) Sometimes referred to as the utility cost test, this test compares the utility’s avoided cost benefits with energy efficiency program expenditures (incentives plus administrative costs)..
Program Ratepayer Impact Measure (RIM) *
(*) Rate Impact Measure Test (RIM): This test compares the utility’s avoided cost benefits with the cost of administering energy efficiency programs plus lost revenue from reductions in customer energy consumption. The RIM test is a distributional test that is best-suited for assessing the equity (fairness) impacts of energy efficiency programs.
Participant Cost Test (PCT) *
(*) Participant Cost Test (PCT): This test compares participant benefits (incentives plus bill savings) with participant costs (incremental or capital cost, installation, O&M, etc.).
Societal Cost Test
(*) The SCT is similar to the TRC, except the SCT explicitly quantifies externality benefits such as avoided pollutant emissions not represented in market prices and other non-energy benefits (e.g., improved health/productivity).
8760 Cost Effectiveness Tests *
(*) An 8760 energy calculation is an hour-by-hour analysis that simulates or evaluates a building’s performance for all 8,760 hours in a given 12-month period. This method uses the actual sequence of days and weather data, instead of averages. An 8760 analysis produces the most accurate energy model and operating cost estimates.
