Voluntary Electric Energy Efficiency and Conservation Programs

The implementation of electric energy efficiency and conservation (EE&C) measures can assist all electric customers in mitigating retail electric rate increases and ensure affordable and available electric service.  Act 129 of 2008, P.L. 1592 (Act 129), established a robust and comprehensive energy efficiency and conservation program for the large electric distribution companies (EDCs) within this Commonwealth. 

The Commission believes that customers served by small EDCs can also benefit from EE&C measures designed to help ensure affordable and available electric service.  EDCs with fewer than 100,000 customers were exempted from the requirement to file an Act 129 EE&C plan.  Consequently, in a Commission issued Secretarial Letter guidance was provided to small EDCs that concluded that such measures were in the interest of their customers and wished to submit an EE&C plan.

Secretarial Letter - Secretarial Letter issued on Dec. 23, 2009 under Docket Number M-2009-2142851 to encourage smaller EDCs to file voluntary EE&C Plans.
