Methods used by electric power companies for estimating future loads as a basis for timing generating capacity additions have been examined. It has been found that these estimates deviate widely from time to time from the loads subsequently experienced. A method is developed for interrelating the total annual energy requirements, annual energy sales by classes, and the annual peak loads as a possible basis for improving the timing of generating capacity additions.
