Responses to Key Action Items
Action Item: Codes and Standards – SAG Facilitation will follow-up with ComEd on the Arizona model.
- Response: The following documents provide additional information on the Codes and Standards program in Arizona: Delivering High Levels of Energy Savings for Utility Programs: Strategies from Arizona (Ellen Zuckerman & Jeff Schlegel, Southwest Energy Efficiency Project); Arizona Public Service Company Filing; and SRP Results Report.
- Both Arizona Public Service and Salt River Project offer this program. Slide 13 of Ellen Zuckerman’s presentation provides a high level summary of the Building Codes support. Page 1 of the SRP report highlights its most recent results, and pages 16-17 of the APS plan filing gives a little more detail regarding the program design. Note that AZ limits the amount of claimed savings to 33% of the evaluated quantity. APS asked that this be increased to 50%; however, that request was denied by the ACC.
