    Energy Efficiency and Demand Response (EEDR) Plan
    Matter # 20-01326

    Background:

    Pursuant to the Public Authorities Law, PSEG Long Island (PSEG LI or Company), 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 Long Island (PSEG LI) submitted its annual EEDR (previously referred to as the Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy) Plan to the DPS on June 30, 2020, as an appendix to its Utility 2.0 filing. Matter Number 14-01299—PSEG Long Island’s Utility 2.0 Plan. The EEDR 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 analysis. To assist in development of the EEDR plans, PSEG LI utilizes an independent evaluator, Opinion Dynamics Corporation (ODC), for evaluation, measurement and verification of energy savings and for technical recommendations to improve program performance.

    State Goals

    The EEDR Plans are developed in alignment with 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 are as follows. In April 2018, the DPS issued its New Efficiency: New York White Paper, proposing an ambitious statewide energy efficiency initiative (Issued April 26, 2018; Case 18-M-0084). This was followed by two Public Service Commission Orders – the Order Adopting Accelerated Energy Efficiency Targets, issued December 13, 2018 and the Order Authorizing Energy Efficiency and Building Electrification Portfolios through 2025, issued January 16, 2020 (Case 18-M-0084). These Orders 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. Download the CLCPA Fact Sheet here.
