Virginia AEE Lauds State Corporation Commission Approval of Energy Efficiency and Demand Response Programs That Will Save Virginians Money

Richmond, May 2, 2019 – Business group Virginia Advanced Energy Economy (Virginia AEE) applauded today’s decision by the Virginia State Corporation Commission (SCC) to approve a portfolio of 11 new energy efficiency (EE) and demand response (DR) programs proposed by Dominion Energy Virginia. The portfolio includes programs utilizing an array of advanced energy technologies and services, including residential customer engagement, smart thermostats, and lighting systems and controls. The Commission approved in its entirety the proposed budget of $225.8 million for the programs, which are slated to commence this summer and run through June of 2024. 

“This decision marks a genuine sea change in the use of energy efficiency and demand response in Virginia,” said Harry Godfrey, executive director of Virginia AEE, in response to the Commission’s ruling. “For years our Commonwealth has badly underutilized these resources for reducing energy demand and saving money on electric bills. That’s cost Virginia families and businesses dearly. Today’s ruling is a major step toward changing that.”
