3 IDSM – What is it? IDSM Vision Implement integrated energy efficiency, low income energy efficiency, demand response, CSI programs to provide customers with energy management solutions. IDSM Objectives Meet or exceed energy savings and demand reduction targets established by the Commission through flexible portfolio management Achieve increased levels of program awareness and participation by ensuring messaging and communications are relevant, beneficial and meaningful to our customers Involve local communities, community-based organizations and valued service providers by developing partnerships, and utilizing third-parties to provide innovative technologies Coordinate local government, state and federal agencies, including water agencies and air quality district regulations related to greenhouse gas.
4 Messaging Messaging Strategy: Present IDSM as the complete energy management solution that can help customers save energy, as well as manage their energy costs. Objectives: Ensure that customers clearly understand “energy management” as a whole in regards to how energy-efficiency, low income energy efficiency and demand response can work together. For general awareness communications, “un-brand” programs and instead focus messaging on program benefits For program-specific promotions, “match” programs together in terms of appropriateness for the customer and focus on benefits – Low-income energy efficiency customer programs – Segmentation of commercial customers – Target residential customers using other segmentation tools (e.g., Prism codes)
5 Communications Plan - Messaging Aggressively generate customer interest, awareness and participation in our programs by illustrating that participation is a smart and simple thing to do: – Continue to “unbrand”/”rebrand” programs which ultimately leads to better customer segmentation, personalized communication and messaging that is relevant – Focus communications on customer benefits and industry segment needs; not programs. Solutions will be bundled to aggressively include EE, LIEE, DR and CSI opportunities – Provide energy management “packaged” solutions for each industry segment. Example: “Get the complete Energy Management Solution tailored for your business.” – Incorporate “Go Green. Save Green” theme into all communications and show businesses how we can help them achieve their “green” goals (GHG emissions reductions, conservation, approval of their customers, and other benefits).
6 Residential IDSM Strategy Identify opportunities to build relationships between HVAC technologies. – Market Summer Saver program to tune-up customers (targeted zip codes) – Market HVAC tune-ups to existing Summer Saver (AC cycling) customers Continue to encourage higher levels of energy efficiency in Residential New Construction. – Higher levels of compliance with T24 enables participation in New Homes Solar Partnership (CEC program) Identify program design gaps between EE and LIEE and evaluate solutions to ensure that all customers have the opportunity to accelerate adoption of energy efficiency. – Explore creating innovative incentives – Expand use of residential energy management tools Expand EE and LIEE in-home education to include information on GHG, Smart Meters, and tie-in with EE, DR, CSI
10 C&I IDSM Strategy – EE/DR Campaign (Cross Promotion with EE/DR) Implement a modified ‘Energy Saver Bonus Program’ for contractors and customers—provides additional program incentives for successfully enrolling customers in both EE and DR programs. (@007 and 2008) KWickView tool/training promoted to assist with energy management – Website Evolve Energy Savings Center for Business making it user friendly and providing simple energy-savings tool – Ongoing http://www.sdge.com/esc/index.shtml – Collateral Update all materials that are dated and refresh existing materials - Ongoing – Outreach/Events/Training – Industry-Specific Workshops – JAN-DEC 2008 – Contractor/Trade Forums – MAR, JUN, SEPT, DEC 2008 – Aggregator Symposium – FEB, OCT 2008 – Energy Showcase – MAY 8, 2008
12 C&I IDSM “Special Offer” Strategy To help drive enrollment and program participation during the first four months of 2008 (before the official start of DR season), SDG&E will offer a special bonus payment – the “Energy Saver Bonus” Any size business customer will receive this bonus if they are able to successfully enroll (and participate) in both an EE and DR program. This not only allows the customer to benefit from long- term savings (EE) and short-term payments (DR), but customers will be able to enjoy a cash payback through this special offer The offer will primarily be driven by contractors and AEs. The offer will be available on a first-come, first served basis through 06/30/08 only
13 C&I IDSM “Special Offer” Strategy To continue the objective of “bundling” services together so that the appropriate programs are matched to the appropriate C/I segments, we have identified the following DR/EE programs for each audience segment for the Energy Saver Bonus promotion: Small Business (under 100kW): Small Business Super Saver bundled with Summer Saver or Peak Day (10% savings achieved required for Peak Day) Mid-Size (100-499kW) and Large C/I (above 500kW/assigned): Express bundled with Peak Day (10% min. req.) or DBP (participation req.); SPC or Bid bundled with TI (TI required; enrollment in any DR program required)
14 2009-2011 Program Integration Objectives Using Smart Meters Program integration will be enhanced by the deployment of the Smart Meter technology. – In-home display – Programmable communicating thermostats – Home Area Network technologies – CPP and PTR The customer benefits from the ability to access detailed usage data to allow them to make more informed decisions. The programs benefit by accessing energy use patterns for target marketing. Plan to install first 5000 meters this spring.
15 2009 Proposed Program Enhancements Residential Web presentment linked to appropriate programs based on usage. Utilizing the Smart Meter technology we will interface with the customer using web sites and information display options. Commercial Web presentment linked to appropriate programs based on usage. Broaden the scope of the Technical Assistance offer to include the complete energy management solution. Integrated technology incentives
17 2006-2008 Technical Assistance The Technical Assistance Program (TA) is a comprehensive energy audit service designed to help customers identify methods for reducing energy costs and encouraging greater participation in demand response and energy efficiency programs. An incentive is available to offset the cost of an in- depth assessment. Subcontractors could be utilized to provide the audit service; The results will be reviewed by both demand reduction and energy efficiency staff; The results will provide the customer with a clear action plan; A follow-up meeting with the customer will encourage them to implement the plan and participate in available programs.
18 2006-2008 Technical Incentives The Technology Incentive Program (TI) is a financial incentive program intended to encourage customer adoption and installation of demand response and energy efficiency measures by offsetting the cost of purchase and installation of demand response measures. Available to both retrofit and Savings By Design program participants. Designed to work hand-in-hand with TA program

22 Lessons Learned Audit target points at milestones Hold a kick-off design charrette to establish design strategies. Review strategies throughout design and construction phases Keep documentation concise Start documentation early, assign and track responsibilities through milestones and stay updated on project specific USGBC rulings. Make LEED documentation part of construction meetings Partner with Industry contacts and resources The General Contractor’s experience in green building provided needed guidance. Utility provided energy efficiency recommendation, green building information and renewable energy opportunity Carefully review Sustainable Sites credits Although an existing building, there was plenty of opportunity for achieving credits in this category, Integrate Auto Demand Response Into Building Operations Incorporate Auto DR into facility EMS system

26 Lessons Learned Don’t follow a cookie cutter approach when evaluating sustainable design elements. Do what works best for your project. Start early with a green consultant. If you haven’t done a green project before, this is absolutely critical. Don’t be afraid to ask the technical questions again and again, keeping the overview of the entire project in mind. This can be replicated in Low-income/affordable housing
