    Hello Steve, The base assumption for this type of analysis is how you are going to assume the savings on lower utility bills will be spent. For Industries, savings most likely will go towards profits, but again if you feel that they would buy more or pay more you can certainly make and exercise these assumptions in the Model. If you do decided to model any of these savings, you would need to determine who was spending and what they were spending the savings on. Then you would impact these Sectors with the value of the savings. If the change is significant, you could consider modifying the spending pattern for Industries, but since you are looking at an across economy change, that could be daunting to consider.
