|Abstract:||This paper is an analysis of the costs and benefits of the government’s chosen rate design for the Regulated Rate Option (RRO) post-2006. The historical performance of the monthly forward market price setting used by Alberta’s three major RRO providers is evaluated by way of counter-factual analysis; specifically, its costs and benefits relative to monthly Pool price flow-through price setting are estimated over the course of the “New” RRO. This analysis indicates that the government’s chosen rate design resulted in a relative cost of approximately $1 billion, with no relative benefits.|
