Utility Sponsored Energy Efficiency Incentives
Utility sponsored energy efficiency programs can be traced back to the first energy crises in the 1970s, in an effort to help customers with rising energy costs. Since then, energy efficiency programs have expanded fairly steadily in a pursuit of higher savings goals. Financial incentives are offered to allure utility customers by lowering upfront costs, often complementing new appliance standards, energy codes and overcoming market barriers for cost effective technologies. Energy efficiency is a cost effective means for the utilities to reduce greenhouse gases, save money for customers, and generate jobs.
