3 Florida DR and Energy Efficiency Background
Florida has engaged in Demand Response and Energy Efficiency Since 1980 Demand Response and Energy Efficiency are part of each major Florida utilities' annual planning process Florida utilities consistently look first to Demand Response and Energy Efficiency to meet growing electricity demand Florida ranks 2nd among states in Demand Response and Energy Efficiency1 Lisa Scoles noted the points formulated on today's call along the lines of the following: *Energy efficiency and DSM are looked at first in Florida's planning process. *Figures of what has been saved (MWh and demand) since FEECA was implemented should be included. *Florida has continued to invest in energy efficiency and DSM programs while other states have not sustained DSM investment. *The process of looking at including energy efficiency and DSM measures and programs is institutionalized in Florida as part of the ten year planning process and of periodic reviews of energy efficiency goals as required by statute. 1Source: 2005 per DOE EIA F861

35 What Didn’t Work Building Code Impacts What Works Well
Lessons Learned What Didn’t Work Building Code Impacts What Works Well

36 What Didn’t 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 doesn’t 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 2007 50% 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 Reduction1 Florida placed 2 utilities in Top Ten of Nation1 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 14―400MW power plants 1Source: 2005 per DOE EIA
