Economic Analysis & Services

Economic Analysis & Services includes several separate and sometimes interrelated analyses. Economic analysis includes for example benefit-cost analysis, risk analysis, economic impact assessments, forecasts, load research studies, or other analyses required by decision makers to make final decisions. These services are provided to help our clients understand both inputs to decision-making and the impact of those decisions. Benefit-cost studies help clients determine whether a policy or program is an effective means in meeting goals. These studies can be completed for various options and from several perspectives. Benefit-cost analyses often include forecasts or economic impact assessments.  These services are sometimes provided individually as well. Finally, load research studies help form inputs to cost of service analysis or rate design.
