This report provides information about the economic
decision-making process for implementation of a Modular
Integrated Utility System (MIUS) by utility companies,
developers, and a combination of these two groups.
Information was obtained through informal telephone
interviews from these participant groups about their
economic analysis of utility investment alternatives.
The content of these conversations was synthesized into
economic criteria which are perceived by each
participant to be most important in evaluating
alternative utility investments. From the analysis of
these economic criteria, the possible combinations of
participants and roles in the implementation of a MIUS
are specified. These combinations are ranked, according
to the degree of likelihood that each method will
actually be employed. The conclusion of this report is
that a MIUS is most likely to be implemented by a
governmental body, such as a municipal utility or
governmental developer. (from Executive Summary). (ERA
