Summary

MAISY Commercial and residential hourly load profile databases have been developed from dozens of data sources including utility, association, government and Jackson Associates proprietary utility customer surveys and detailed appliance engineering analysis. Databases reflect a statistically valid sample of residential and commercial utility customers throughout the US. Databases are available for ZIPs, metropolitan areas, utility service areas, state and regions and other geographic areas.

The 7 million+ customer MAISY databases are large enough to provide drill-down capabilities to individual ZIP code/Metro/State geographic areas and to further refine analysis results for customer detailed segments without sacrificing accuracy. This level of specificity is unmatched by any other data source. Click Here to see a comparison of MAISY and US Department of Energy customer data sources.

MAISY hourly load data for geographic regions differ from engineering model-based data sources in that they reflect energy use characteristics of actual commercial buildings and residential dwelling units in those areas. instead of using assumptions on electric appliance holdings, household members, income levels, etc. The fixed assumption inputs in engineering models (like those in the DOE/NREL Loads data) can result in errors of well over 100% when assessing individual customers, market segments and the entire market associated with a geographic location.

Hourly and 15-minute kW load detail is based on metered electricity use data.

Databases are provided in CSV or Excel file formats for easy access and analysis supporting deep drill-down operations to develop energy use information for detailed customer segments.

Custom projects can provide Jackson Associates clients with data summaries and analysis results based MAISY Database analysis.
