3 Florida DR and Energy Efficiency Background Florida has engaged in Demand Response and Energy Efficiency Since 1980Demand Response and Energy Efficiency are part of each major Florida utilities' annual planning processFlorida utilities consistently look first to Demand Response and Energy Efficiency to meet growing electricity demandFlorida ranks 2nd among states in Demand Response and Energy Efficiency1Lisa 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
4 19 Programs Over 110 opportunities for rebates Programs and Measures19 ProgramsOver 110 opportunities for rebates
5 Energy Audit: Inform, Motivate, Implement Educates and motivates our customers to implement measures using our rebatesAlmost 3.4 million customers have received an energy audit—48% of customersHelps to eliminate FreeRidersEducate customers on true energy savings, not the “mystery box” that will save 35% energy!Work done—Inspect minimum of 10% of improvements for quality controlEnergy Audit Services Provided:On-site On-Line Phone Assisted Mail Paid
