Lessons Learned What Didnt Work Building Code Impacts What Works Well
36 What Didnt Work Increased Incentives no Guarantee of Increased Participation Goal Setting must be from market potential and not from Top Down approach Keep it Simple –Rebate process and rules have to be extremely easy to understand and follow to get maximum participation Advertising: One size doesnt fit all –Commercial customers require relationships to be established with customer and equipment vendors Gateway Communication 1998 –Technology not ready and costly –Concept ahead of technology Residential Paid Audits –Additional time and information not accepted Load Control programs can grow too large a percent of reserves
37 Building Code Impacts 1990 Code change from SEER 10 demonstrates slow transition to hi-efficiency Heat Pumps: 7 years Record number of implementations in 2006 with less than 50% of that number expected in % drop
38 What Works Well Duct Seal & Repair –Over 660,000 ducts repaired/sealed –Success due to education of consumer & contractors to address an invisible issue Duct curriculum and training developed and delivered annually to AC contractors Direct Load Control has 1.2M customers –Saved 16% of Total USA Peak Demand Reduction 1 –Florida placed 2 utilities in Top Ten of Nation 1 in MW of EE & DR Developed multiple delivery channels –Field representatives and account managers –Participating Independent Contractors –Trade Association partnerships –Community organizations partnerships –Government Agencies partnerships –Internet access to programs and rebate information Florida on track 5,332 Summer MW of Reduction and 5,655 Winter MW in 2007 –This is equivalent to 14400MW power plants 1 Source: 2005 per DOE EIA
