1 REQUIREMENTS You will need to complete the following tasks and deliver your finding in a written report by August 6th. Research the six scenarios given below in option 1 for added capacity to uncover any additional costs/benefits to society these options might pose. Write a two page summary describing each scenario. Discuss the pros and cons of each scenario, including such items as renewable sources of fuel, environmental factors, etc. Give examples of each type of project by name and location and indicate the sources of your information. Please use either IEEE or APA style. Do an economic analysis of the six scenarios. Use a 20-year period and assume an inflation rate of 4 percent. Include your calculations and any assumptions in the report. Also answer the following questions: Which scenario is the best from an economic basis? Are there any other considerations, such as environmental/health/social issues, which should be considered? Which scenario have you selected based on the answers to a and b? What is the estimated timeframe to implement the different options? (base your timelines on existing projects of similar size if possible, use MS Project/Project Libre to generate the timelines) Make a recommendation regarding the best option for the utility. 2 Situations A utility company in one of the western states is considering the addition of 50 megawatts of generating capacity to meet expected demands for electrical energy by the year 2025. The three options that the utility has are: Add generating capacity. Constructing one of the scenarios below would do this. Purchase power from Canada under terms of a 20-year contract. Do neither of the above. This assumes that brownouts will occur during high demand periods. The utility presently has 200 megawatts of installed capacity and generates an average of 1.2 billion kilowatt-hours annually. Maximum generation capability is 1.3 billion kW-hours. By the year 2025, this reserve of 100,000,000 kW-hours will be used. 2.1 OPTION 1 – ADD GENERATING CAPACITY For this option there are six possible scenarios: Hydroelectric dam. Initial cost is $ 50 million. Annual operating and maintenance cost is $ 1.7 million. Project life is 30 years before a major rebuild is required. Wind farm. Initial cost is $ 28 million. Annual operating and maintenance cost is $ 2.5 million. Project life is 12 years. At this time new equipment will be required. Solar power. Initial cost is $ 32 million. Annual operating and maintenance cost is $ 1.1 million. Project life is 10 years. Natural gas turbines. Initial cost is $ 14 million. Annual operating and maintenance cost is $2.0 million. Project life is 12 years. Nuclear plant. Initial cost is $ 70 million. Annual operating and maintenance cost is $ 2.0 million. Project life is 25 years. Coal-fired turbines. Initial cost is $ 35 million. Annual operating and maintenance cost is $ 2.7 million. Project life is 28 years. 2.2 OPTION 2 – BUY POWER FROM CANADA The annual additional energy requirement is 350,000,000 kilowatt-hours. The cost of energy from Canada is 1.48 cents per kilowatt-hour for the first year. The price will be escalated at 4 percent annually for the 20-year contract period. 2.3 OPTION 3 – DO NOTHING Local municipalities are very opposed to this option since companies may have to close down for short periods of time. Also, it would be very difficult to attract new businesses. If nothing is done, by the year 2025 it is anticipated that some companies will be without power for short periods of time during the summer months. These are known as brownouts. It is estimated, based on historical data that these outages will occur once a week during July and August for periods of 6 hours.

ITM 220 – Excel Assignment, ver 5.1 Individual (not group) Effort Data Analysis with Spreadsheet Software (Excel) OVERVIEW – The purpose of this assignment is to give you a chance to demonstrate your understanding of data analysis tools available in today’s spreadsheets such as Microsoft Excel. You’ll be working with data extracted from an ERPsim game performed by ITM 220 students a few months ago. This is not data from our class, so when considering the performance of “your team” (use data for Team “H” as your team data) don’t be surprised that it is significantly different from what you may recall for our ERPsim game. APPROACH – 1. Begin with the data found in this Excel Workbook–Worksheet named “ERPsimRawData” 2. Use tools and techniques as we discussed in class to study the data: a. Autofilter (and Advanced Filter) b. Conditional Formatting c. Lookup Table (VLOOKUP) d. Pivot Table e. Charts (smart ones, please) 3. Create multiple worksheets to document your answers to the following questions: Q1. What were average Muesli prices (per box) in the 2nd round? Organize by product. Label your answer worksheet “Q1”. COMMENT: It is necessary that you use a pivot table and be sure to use a chart, as well. Q2. How does your company (Team H – Leipzig) compare to your chief competitors–Munich and Stuttgart–on product prices? Use the lookup function (VLOOKUP) to add city name to your raw data and then use city name in your answer. Label your answer worksheet “Q2”. COMMENT: A pivot table is expected–chart, too. Q3. Which team has the most total sales revenue for each round? Label your answer worksheet “Q3”. COMMENT: Pivot table is expected–chart, too. Q4. Fill in the missing data in the worksheet labeled “FinancialForecast” –similarly to what we did in class. Use Scenario Manager to build 3 scenarios for projected company financial performance: Best Case, Expected case, and Worst Case scenarios (as we did in class) by modifying the appropriate blue highlighted cells in the Assumptions area. (Only 4 of these such highlighted cells will be used. Right?) Create an appropriate (your choice) chart illustrating the Summary Table results. Label your answer worksheet “Q4”. COMMENT: Must use Scenario Manager and you should be able to answer using a single worksheet for summary table and chart (as we did in class). Q5. Duplicate (NOT copy/paste) the “FinancialForecast” worksheet on which you have entered your assumptions data for the Expected Case. Label this new worksheet “Q5.” Use Goal seek to determine the average daily Grocery Chains sales needed in order to achieve Earnings Before Taxes of 500,000 Euros in Round 1. Discuss the plausibility of attaining such daily sales (probably based on the result of your answer to question 4). (And notice that growth rates are irrelevant to answer this question since we are talking FIRST round.) COMMENT: This is very easy using Goal Seek. However, a manual solution using trial and error is possible. Please describe the technique you used. Note: If you need multiple worksheets to answer a question label them as “Q1a”, “Q1b”, etc. DELIVERABLE – When you’re done you’ll have one Excel file to submit using the Assignments link on Blackboard. See the syllabus for due date. Below are a couple of helpful reference tables (use for lookup function?).
