How does Efficiency Smart work?
Communities that subscribe to Efficiency Smart’s services help to fund the program in return for a specific energy savings target based on the characteristics of their community. The savings achieved through energy efficiency are more cost-effective than purchasing additional power supply. Efficiency Smart tracks and reports these savings in every participating community, which are later verified by a third-party evaluator.
All residential, commercial and industrial electric utility customers of the communities that have subscribed to the Efficiency Smart program are eligible for its services. Look for Efficiency Smart promotions on this website, in the mail, in your local newspapers and other places where you find community news.
