Conservation First Tool Kit available for review
Toolkit will help with design of energy conservation programs
Stakeholders are encouraged to submit their comments
The Conservation First Framework will provide local distribution companies (LDCs) with long term, stable funding for Conservation and Demand Management (CDM) programs. It will give LDCs greater flexibility and autonomy to design and deliver conservation programs that meet local needs, strengthen regional collaboration and cooperation with natural gas utilities and enhance accountability on the part of the OPA and distributors to deliver cost-effective conservation programs.
In collaboration with LDCs, the Electricity Distributors Association and natural gas utilities, the OPA has developed a draft Tool Kit that will help LDCs design their CDM Plans to cost effectively meet local customer needs. The Tool Kit was launched on July 31, 2014.
