Electric & Gas Energy Efficiency Programs and Savings

The level of savings on utility sector efficiency programs is a major indicator of the level of investment in efficiency in a jurisdiction. Local jurisdictions have varying levels of control over utility savings on efficiency.

This sub-category includes information on three topics: Most recent year net incremental electric savings as a result of efficiency programs in energy units (MWh) and as a percentage of retail sales; Most recent year net incremental natural gas savings as a result of efficiency programs in energy units (MMTherms) and as a percentage of retail sales; Formal and/or information partnership of local jurisdiction of and/or with electric and/or natural gas utility on efficiency programs.

In 2018, the Energy Information Administration (EIA) reported Ohio Edison had 332,318 MWh of net electric savings at the meter, which represents 1.36% of its retail sales across the utility’s entire service jurisdiction, not only Akron. In 2018, Ohio Edison spent $30,863,000 on energy efficiency programs, which represents 2.23% of its retail revenue.
