Demand Side Management Program Support

Electric and gas utilities need to encourage their customers to use energy more efficiently to preserve dwindling resources. The PUC has developed concept and monetary incentives for such efforts. Rising to this challenge requires understanding the PUC’s intent, developing various options and evaluating the cost-effectiveness of incentive levels.
