Letter from the Community Leader:
Focusing on energy efficiency is not a new idea. Utilities have implemented energy efficiency programs for years in an effort to help customers save money while minimizing the demand for critical and expensive resources. But in recent years, energy efficiency has taken a new level of importance in the power sector. Many of the existential challenges facing utilities can be at least partially addressed by energy efficiency:
- Blackouts and grid interruptions can be minimized when energy efficiency is maximized.
- The use of energy efficiency assists power providers in meeting their climate and decarbonization goals.
- Energy equity issues can be first attacked by providing low or no-cost efficiency upgrades to vulnerable customers.
