Abstract

The main purpose of this study is to explore the role of economic and noneconomic factors in the determination of household’s demand for electricity in district Peshawar. Primary data was collected for this purpose from 200 households of City Rural Division during November-December 2009. Multinomial logistic model was used to derive estimates. The study concluded that income, number of rooms, price of electricity, weather and education are important determinants of household demand for electricity in district Peshawar. However, the study suggested that a provincial level study in this regard will be more helpful for government in understanding the real pattern of domestic demand for electricity.
