Commercial Load Estimation Tool

Commercial estimating requires correct handling of a broad range of issues. The input data requirements are more complex, as well as, the logic to process that data. Southern Company has invested a significant amount of effort into this process resulting in the iCLEARâ„¢ (Industrial & Commercial Load Estimating and Referencing) system. This system is available for licensing to the DSTAR members. This project will develop and validate regional models, based on a proprietray method developed by Z Solutions, and using DSTAR member facility data. The models will be implemented in iCLEAR to estimate commercial loads in different regions of the country.
