Dr. Bardwell has over three decades of experience in the construction industry with his own design build firm. Since 1989 Dr. Bardwell has operated Bardwell Consulting Ltd. a statistic and mathematical modeling firm specializing in probability modeling and econometric analysis. Since 2007, Dr. Bardwell has been developing OptiMiser; a residential and light commercial energy modeling program designed to more efficiently identify optimal energy retrofit solutions. In 2008, Dr. Bardwell submitted testimony on existing utility incentives and the regulatory structure before the Public Utilities Commission of the State of Colorado in the 2007 Colorado Resource Plan Docket. For the testimony Dr. Bardwell developed an econometric model capable of reproducing analysis of the relative cost of electrical generation from different resources. His article resulted from that testimony.
Public Service Company of Colorado (PSCo)'s 2003 resource selection process selected electrical generating resources that will cost ratepayers billions of dollars in avoidable costs. PSCo advocated the use of the same procedure in its 2007 resource plan. PSCo's assumptions for discount rate, fuel price escalation, and CO2 costs favor fossil-fuel over renewable resources. PSCo proposes fuel price forecasts that represent an average decrease of over 1% per year in real fuel costs for both natural gas and coal.
