Duke Energy is committed to encouraging efficient electricity use among residential and nonresidential customers through offering dynamic energy efficiency programs. These programs provide opportunities to reduce the cost of efficiency upgrades and to receive credits for reducing load at appropriate times. To ensure that Duke Energy is operating programs designed to achieve optimal results, the Company hosts the Carolinas DSM/EE Collaborative to solicit feedback. Collaborative meetings are opportunities to share feedback but are not a platform for establishing litigation proceedings or soliciting business. Participants agree to keep information shared in Collaborative meetings confidential.
The Collaborative is an advisory group of interested stakeholders, from across North and South Carolina, representing a wide array of customer groups and interests related to energy efficiency. It serves as a forum for providing insight and input concerning topics related to energy efficiency and DSM including program design and development; measurement and evaluation; regulatory and market conditions; specific issues or topics as requested by the NC Utilities Commission and the Public Service Commission of SC; and emerging opportunities to achieve cost-effective energy savings.
Agendas and redacted presentations from previous meetings are available below. For more information about the Collaborative’s activities or to inquire about joining, please contact Lynda Powers.
