Counting the Capacity that Didn't Hatch: The Rate Mitigation Effect of DSM Programs at Center for Energy and Environment

December 12, 2013 from 11am to 12pm
Minnesota’s electric utility efficiency programs have saved approximately 68,000 GWh of electricity since 1992.1 This conserved energy, which has been called “negawatts,”2 can be considered a system resource analogous to a new power plant. It allows utilities to serve their projected load with available supply resources by reducing demand rather than increasing supply.Using Xcel Energy as a case study, this analysis compares the cost of Demand Side Management (DSM) programs to the revenue…See More
