The Retail Price Model is a tool to estimate potential changes in average retail electricity prices – under both competitive and regulated market structures – by combining EPA’s power sector projections with assumptions from the Energy Information Administration.  The links below provide documentation of the model and a sample calculation workbook, which facilitates estimation of potential changes in both regional- and state-level retail electricity rates.  If you have any questions, please contact us using our online form.
