We have sought to be customers’ advocates through providing energy efficiency programs continuously since November 1978. This provides many benefits including helping residential and commercial customers reduce their energy bills, all the while reducing the need to build new generating facilities.

Efficient customers make for a healthy economy; for example, by businesses being more competitive in their markets. Energy efficiency is among the lowest new cost of power for us to acquire (while our average cost of energy production is 6 cents/kWh, it costs upwards of 10 cents/kWh to construct new power plants). And there is an increased focus on “going green”; energy efficiency has very low emissions.
Some of the most noteworthy aspects of our energy efficiency programs include:
