Energy Efficiency, Beneficial Electrification, & Demand Response Plan (EEBEDR)

Background:

Pursuant to the Public Authorities Law, PSEG LI, Service Provider for the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA), submits for review to the Department of Public Service (Department or DPS), proposed plans related to implementation of energy efficiency measures, distributed generation and/or advanced grid technology programs, having the purpose of providing customers with tools to more effectively manage their energy usage and utility bills and improving system reliability and power quality. Pursuant to the Public Service Law, DPS reviews and provides recommendations on these proposed plans to the LIPA Board of Trustees (BOT) for consideration in its approval process, as part of the Department’s regulatory oversight of electric service operations on Long Island.

PSEG LI submitted its annual Energy Efficiency, Beneficial Electrification, & Demand Response Plan (EEBEDR) (previously referred to as the Energy Efficiency and Demand Response Plan - EEDR) to the DPS on July 1, 2022, as an appendix to its Utility 2.0 filing. The EEBEDR Plan describes PSEG LI’s customer-facing energy efficiency programs for residential and commercial customers, their associated energy savings targets, program budgets, and benefit-cost analyses. PSEG LI utilizes an independent evaluator for evaluation, measurement and verification of energy savings and for technical recommendations to improve program performance on an annual basis.

State Goals

The EEBEDR Plan is developed in alignment with NY State energy efficiency targets. These targets are primarily set forth in statute and Public Service Commission policy which are the basis for Department recommendations. Some of the more significant state policy pronouncements and guidance documents related to energy efficiency can be found in Case 18-M-0084 in the Department’s Document Matter Management system (DMM), including the Order Authorizing Utility Energy Efficiency and Building Electrification Portfolios Through 2025 issued January 16, 2020. The PSC has set forth a pathway to achieving a statewide 185 TBTU site energy savings target by 2025. The Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA) was passed in June 2019 which further solidified clean energy goals for New York State.

Public Comment

Interested persons or parties are invited to submit comments on the proposed EEDR Plan by August 23, 2021 and reply comments by September 7, 2021.
