Our web application comprises scenario analysis, reporting and visualization modules built on top of the powerful California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) Cost Effectiveness Tool (CET) SQL-based engine, the performance and availability of which is ensured by Microsoft Azure elastic cloud resources. No other CE tool on the market provides the flexibility and scalability that analysts and decision-makers require and the policy future portends.
Build programs from individual measures, combine them into portfolios, and compare them for evaluation or planning purposes
Track metrics, compare portfolio scenarios, rank measures and programs, or spot trends in planned versus actuals with Microsoft PowerBI or Tableau
Clone a portfolio and run scenarios that account for changes in codes and standards, avoided cost, environmental adders, and program costs
Cost Efffectiveness Tool
Evaluate measures and programs from multiple cost test perspectives: total resource cost (TRC), utility cost test (UCT), participant cost test (PCT), ratepayer impact measure (RIM), and societal cost test (SCT) or modified TRC (mTRC)
Maintain a database for ease of modelling subsequent year portfolios or auditing previous year results, automate data validation at the measure level and enforce security and foster collaboration with role-based access controls
Produce CPUC CET-compliant results that are defensible and avoid the version control challenges and capacity limitations associated with Excel models
