SWEEP: Review of Residential Retrofit Programs Offered by Utilities in the Southwest
SWEEP’s new report, A Review of Residential Retrofit Programs Offered by Utilities in the Southwest, is now available. This report examines programs that are offered by twelve electric and gas utilities in the southwest region. These utilities plan to spend nearly $100 million on retrofit programs in 2011. Costs per unit of first year energy savings are as low as $0.05 per kWh for some utilities. Programs implemented by Questar Gas Company and Fort Collins Utilities are highlighted for their flexibility, thoroughness and high energy savings. This report was authored by J.C. Martel, SWEEP Buildings Program Associate.
