Question: Can you please confirm that the product of the following three items equals the PJM settlement data called load without losses? 1) hourly load 2) the DP&L UFE Factor, and 3) [1-Deration Factor]

Answer: The product of ‘Hourly Load’ & ‘DP&L UFE Factor’ is Load With Losses.  Multiplying that by ‘Deration Factor’ results in Marginal (Transmission) Losses.  To obtain Load Without Losses, subtract Marginal Losses from the product of ‘Hourly Load’ and ‘DP&L UFE Factor’.

The given non-shopping Res PLC as of 2/28/2017 is 561,239 which is said to include PIPP. Given that PIPP is almost 15% of the default service Res load, can you please confirm that the illustrative PLC is correct?

Question: Can you confirm that the PLC values in FAQ DAT 00015 exclude the PIPP PLC? The PLC from DAT 00012 of 72,073 kW combined with the Residential PLC from FAQ DAT 00015 of 545,878 kW equals 617,951 kW. This is approximately 10% higher than the PLC as of 2/28/17 provided in the "Capacity PLC & DZSF" tab of the historical data file of 561,239 kW. Since this value includes PIPP it seems odd that the PY 17/18 PLC values excluding PIPP would be 10% higher than the current planning year PLC values which include PIPP, for dates that are within a month of each other.

Answer: The PLC's are correct.  Please note the scaling factors.  June 1, 2017 has a scaling factor of 1.0098, and February 28, 2017 has a scaling factor of 0.9719.

Question: What's the difference between the hourly PIPP data in the "Historical Hourly Loads by Class 2017" and the same data in the "PIPP Load" file? For example, hour 24 of Sept 30, 2017 of the PIPP data in the "Historical Hourly Loads by Class 2017" = 22,952 kW and the same hour has a value = 25,208 kW in the "PIPP Load" file.

Answer: The 'PIPP Load' filed contains estimates based on monthly customer counts and usage.  The 'Historical Hourly Loads' file contains actual settlement data.  To avoid confusion, updated/corrected load data has been posted to the website which removes the hourly estimates from the 'PIPP Load' file beginning June 1, 2017.

Question: We observed that "2013_2017_PIPP.xlsx" shows 25934 PIPP customers in Jun 2017, but "2017_DPL_Load_Data_FINAL_upd02222018.xlsx" file shows the average customer for Jun 2017 is only 24381 in " Count_PIPP" sheet. Can we know why the two numbers are different? Is there anything we are missing?

Answer: The total in the ‘2013_2017_PIPP.xlsx’ file is the total number of PIPP customers that billed in June 2017.  This includes all accounts whether or not they were active at the beginning or end of June.  The total in the ‘2017_DPL_Load_Data_FINAL_upd02222018.xlsx’ file is the total number of PIPP customers in any given day in that month.  This number will be the net total as accounts are taken off and added to the PIPP program.
