SEPA Connect Virtual Case Study Club: The Rhode Island BCA Framework

Benefit-cost analysis (BCA) has been used for many years to identify the benefits and costs of utility actions for individual programs, expenditures and investments, influencing both regulatory approvals and utility investment decisions. The Rhode Island PUC’s decision to develop a more comprehensive BCA framework was driven by both statute and a desire to be better able to evaluate all types of utility proposals consistently within a changing electricity system. In this interactive virtual group discussion, participants will discuss the Rhode Island Framework, described in the recently published SEPA case study, to explore the development and application of the Rhode Island Benefit-Cost Framework and how it can serve as a model for other states.

In this webinar you’ll learn:

  • Understand how the Rhode Island process approached the complexities of evaluating the benefits and costs of significantly different types of utility expenditures
  • Identify different applications of the Framework through examples from the utility
  • Explore observations, challenges, and lessons learned to understand how a comprehensive BCA Framework can be developed and used in your own jurisdiction
