Can’T Take the Heat? Randomized Field Experiments in Household Electricity Consumption

This study examines results of two field experiments over a two-year period in Texas that include both pricing and informational interventions to encourage electricity conservation during peak and off-peak periods. Using data at the appliance-minute-level, interestingly, we find only the pricing treatment had a significant impact on reducing electricity consumption.
