Lighting programs dominate 2019 measures with growth potential
The 2019 Demand Side Management (DSM) Annual Report focuses on program descriptions and data, as well as highlights from the year, the most significant being in the lighting programs. The residential lighting program accounted for nearly 90 percent of 2019 measures, with cooperatives securing more than 9,000 LEDs and members buying an additional 16,000 bulbs through the lighting store.
On the commercial and industrial side, 90 projects received incentives that resulted in almost 16,000 MWh in energy savings and 15.23 MW of winter peak demand reduction.
“Both lighting programs have great potential for growth, which is evident because we’re still seeing such a high take rate,” says Blake Kleaving, manager of Energy Management Solutions.
