UTILITY RATEPAYER-FUNDED ENERGY EFFICIENCY PROGRAMS DETERMINED SUCCESSFUL

Despite, the huge variance in evaluation approaches, the American Council for an Energy Efficiency Economy says utility ratepayer-funded energy efficiency programs are working.  

A report released last month reviews a variety of approaches that 44 states (plus Washington, DC) utilize to evaluate utility ratepayer-funded energy efficiency programs and concludes that programs are  cost-effective and successful.   Florida is evaluated only by the utilities themselves, not the Public Service Commission or state Legislature as in some other states, ranking 33rd on the ACEEE energy efficiency scorecard.  The evaluation is, however, required by statute (s. 366 and s. 377, FS).
