Los Angeles, CA, December 23, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- California has been a leader in energy efficiency policy and programs since the 1970s. It established the first major utility efficiency programs in the 1980s, and the first PBF in 1996. CPUC provides policy oversight of the state PBF. CPUC approves plans for efficiency programs in each of the utility service areas and also coordinates statewide activities. Further, CPUC requires utilities to use procurement funding to supplement the PBF in order to maximize cost effective savings achieved through energy efficiency programs.
The measures associated with the approved funding are expected to avoid the equivalent of three large power plants (totaling 1,500 MW) over the next three years and over the life of the measures, yield an estimated $2.7 billion in net savings to consumers, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 3.4 million tons of CO2 in 2008, or the equivalent of taking about 650,000 cars off the road.
