9 Example: Peak Load Pricing The price of a good (electricity) for time period i is given as p i The producer chooses how much to produce in each period ( x i ), and the maximal capacity of his plant ( k). The total cost of producing (x 1,…,x n ) is C(x 1,…,x n ). The cost of capacity k is D(k).

10 Nonnegative variables Example: Peak Load Pricing The producer maximizes:
