Leader in demand-side management (DSM)
We are proud to be nationally recognized as a leader in Demand-Side Management (DSM) programs. Since 1978, it's been our continued focus and commitment to provide a variety of cost-effective conservation and energy-efficiency programs to help keep our customers' bills low.
Our DSM efforts through 2016 have resulted in a cumulative summer peak reduction of approximately 4,800 MW at the generator and an estimated cumulative energy savings of approximately 78,400 gigawatt-hours (GWh) at the generator. This has eliminated the need to construct the equivalent of approximately 15 new 400-MW generating units.
To date, we have helped our customers save by providing the following:
- 3.8 million residential Home Energy Surveys;
- 225,000 Business Energy Evaluations;
- 1.9 million rebates for high-efficiency residential air conditioning systems;
- 19,000 business air conditioning rebates; and
- 21,000 business lighting rebates.
