Subject: [hreg] Projected electric rates?
Does anyone have a good independent source (or two) for projected electric rates over the next ten years or so? I’m looking seriously at installing solar panels on our house, &, based on today’s rates vs. system cost, it’s difficult. But, we know electric rates are going to continue to go up. The question is how much. If I were to build a curve based on our rates over the past couple of years, it would probably be approaching vertical in a few years (slight exaggeration) . I have a proposal in hand that includes a long term projection. I have no reason to doubt its accuracy, but I’d like to see another source or two that confirms it. Can anyone help me w/ some projections from other respectable sources?

- The Energy Information Administration estimates trends out to 2030 for retail electricity
rates. Should be a solid basis for long term projections.
