3 Provides cash rebates and incentives for installing energy efficient products/equipment in rehabs and new construction. Goal starts at 0.2% reduction in annual electricity load, rising to 2.0% by 2015 and beyond. Utilities administer 75% of funding DCEO administers 25% of funding Electricity programs began June 1, 2008 Natural Gas programs begin June 1, 2011 Energy Efficiency Portfolio Standard
