​This document is one of the final reports from NRECA's Smart Grid Demonstration Project.

This report investigates the deployment experience at four rural electrical cooperative utilities of conservation voltage reduction (CVR) technology. Data from these field studies are used in the development and calibration of a hybrid powerflow-economic model. We derive a cost-benefit analysis methodology for conservation voltage reduction from this model and validate it against field data.
