This paper proposes a proper rate making strategy for a public owned utility by taking into account the customer load characteristics. The load survey system has been well designed by sampling theory to find the customers for power consumption information collection. By this manner, the typical load patterns derived can effectively represent the load behavior of each customer class. The load patterns of each test customer during different seasons are solved by statistical analysis according to the load information collected. The seasonal typical load pattern of each customer class is then determined by integrating the load patterns of the same type customers. The power consumption of the customer class is then estimated by the typical class load pattern and the energy consumption of all customers in the same class, which can be retrieved from the customer information database. The typical load pattern of whole power system is then determined by aggregating the power consumption of all customer classes. The estimated system load consumption is then compared to the actual system load profile, it is found that a rather accurate system load profile can be predicted by the load survey system
