Thanks for sharing, Jeff. I'd love for you to follow up and share the participation rates and what you learned from this program. Seems like something a lot of other utilities may be able to learn from.

HI Matt.

I could provide additional insight later in the fall after the cooling season has ended.

Thank you for posting this, I am very interested in learning more about how people can be incentivized to reduce energy consumption. Do you think this financial incentive goes far enough? If not, what might be enough?

Our potential study indicated that the amount we decided to use was adequate for this type of program. The incentive has to be balanced between the potential savings and the load reduction value of the managing utility.

Thanks for checking back in on this. Would love to read more, do you have a report outlining the outcomes you can link to?

We plan to do an M&V on our program in 2023, at which time I could link to that report.
