Date: 2019-05-06
Further to our 5th April report, meeting in Richmond, the Virginia State Corporation Commission is reported to have approved approximately $1 billion in new spending on energy efficiency programs designed to reduce energy consumption and the need to produce and distribute additional electricity in the Old Dominion State.

The regulator approved 11 new Dominion Energy programs totaling $226 million as well as energy efficiency spending by Appalachian Power, the state's second largest electric utility. In their approval, the two companies are required to track and report the effectiveness of their programs in reducing energy consumption at a future date.

Appalachian Power Seeks Efficiency Program Approvals (Ind. Report)
Appalachian Power
Date: 2019-04-05
Further to our Jan. 30 coverage, in the Old Dominion State, Appalachian Power, along with Wheeling Power, reports it is requesting Public Service Commission of West Virginia approval for a new Economic Development Fund and changes to the company’s energy efficiency programs, including introducing two new offerings.

The new fund would be financed by a combination of a monthly customer meter charge of 12 cents, generating approximately $670,000 annually, and equal company matching funds, according to a company release.

Planned changes to the utility's energy efficiency programs are aimed at controlling electric power usage and lowering energy costs for program participants. One of the new programs -- the Low-Income Multi-Family Program -- will provide installation of measures such as energy-efficient lighting, water heating measures, appliance upgrades, HVAC replacement and maintenance, insulation and similar features in individual units of multi-family buildings, and will raise awareness and understanding of energy efficiency among participating building owners, managers and tenants.

A second new program -- the Small Business Direct Install Program -- will educate small-business owners about energy efficiency and provide financial incentives to encourage additional energy efficiency improvements.
