In March 2007, the Virginia legislature passed SB 1416 thereby amending Virginia’s earlier electric industry restructuring law, including a energy efficiency goal of 10% electricity savings by 2022 relative to 2006 base sales.
With SB 1416, the State Corporation Commission (SCC) was directed to conduct a series of proceedings to consider whether the 10% goal could be met cost-effectively, determine the mix of programs that should be implemented and their cost, and develop a plan for development and implementation of these programs.
The SCC completed a report verifying the energy efficiency goal of 10% by 2022 was achievable (Case No. PUE-2007-00049) and issued an Order in January of 2008 approving five conservation and energy efficiency pilot projects and four demand response/load management pilots proposed projects proposed by Dominion Virginia Power (Case No. PUE-2007-00089).
More information on Dominion's Energy Conservation Programs can be found on the utility's web site.
