What is the RSAT?
The Retail Sales Allocation Tool (RSAT) is a dynamic interface tool for creating transparent, accurate allocations of sales of energy-efficiency products to the utility service territory in which they were installed—without requiring end-user documentation.
The tool uses detailed data sources that combine:
Information about products and stocking practices
Seventy-two consumer profiles from Experian’s Mosaic© customer segmentation data
GIS to map drive times and overlay the multiple data sources with all 142 public- and investor-owned utility service territories in the Pacific Northwest.
The current output of the tool is in the form of an Excel spreadsheet (with a choice of Macros or Filters) to allow for the tool to be used by all parties without the need for additional software or Web access.
