TweetThe effort and resources that US utilities devote to improving energy efficiency vary widely, according to a new report. The report, entitled Benchmarking Electric Utility Energy Efficiency Portfolios in the US, shows that while some utilities are leading the way in the field, others still show great room for improvement.
The report was based on data provided by utilities to the Energy Information Administration.
Ceres said that of the 50 utilities analyzed in the report, the energy savings the companies were able to achieve range from a low of 0.1 percent of retail sales to nearly two percent at the top of the pile. According to the survey, there is a positive correlation between the power of state energy efficiency policy and the level of investment and savings of individual utilities. The report said many of the utilities analyzed are retiring aging power plants and converting to cleaner energy sources. In Energy 3.0, Rudy Provoost, CEO of Rexel, offers a reading of the energy world of tomorrow, between digital convergence, decentralization of the production and the energy transition. Tracking which utility companies throughout the US offer discounted rates (EV tariffs, reduced off-peak fees, etc) for owners of electric vehicles is darn near impossible. So far, Northeast Group says that only 6% of the utility companies it tracked offered any sort of discount for owners of plug ins.


The Group concludes that the utility-level incentives needed to promote the use of electric vehicles are lacking in the US. We now ask of you, does your local utility offer any sort of discounts to owners of plug-in vehicles?
Gas stations don’t provide special rates for hybrids or something, nor should they in my opinion. I have a TOU rate, with a bonus of having a special 10P-6A rate for the entire meter (not just charging) because I have a plug-in car. HECO has a residential TOU rate as well, but we don’t have enough high-wattage appliances whose use we could shift to off-peak hours to actually reduce our electric bill due to the higher rate during peak hours compared to the regular residential rate.
So for us, adding the EV charging circuit downstream of our apartment’s electric meter might be the least expensive alternative. The report, published by Ceres, a nonprofit organization focusing on sustainability challenges, and energy and environmental advisors M.J. The top ten ranking utilities managed savings of one percent of their annual electricity sales.
Ceres said this shows that state policies that remove unintended disincentives are a big driver of utility spending on energy efficiency.


Some of the worst performers included Metropolitan Edison and Ohio Edison (both subsidiaries of First Energy), Georgia Power, Alabama Power and Mississippi Power(Southern Company subsidiaries) and Duke subsidiary Duke Energy Indiana.
It shouldn’t matter what those electrons are used for, only how much, and possibly when. They give base power away for free but you have to pay like hell if you want 6 or 7 times as much. They make you pay for all the fossil burners that receive their 10 KVA for free and even add some thousand dollars more.
