Utility Energy Savings Incentives

With the passage of Senate File 2311 in 2018, the amount of spending on energy efficiency programs has been limited and is anticipated to stagnate going forward. As a result, greater amounts of savings and benefits to customers have been left on the table. However, there is a way to spur more cost-effective investments in energy efficiency despite the rollback.

This presentation will focus on states in the Midwest that are providing utilities with tiered incentives tied to energy savings achievements.
