Meeting Customers' Energy Efficiency Goals- In Concert with the Environment
MetadataShow full item record
This paper describes an exciting new environmental program called "In Concert With The Environment." This program was originally targeted at high school students who analyzed their household's energy usage and the potential energy and related environmental savings. In addition to traditional energy savings, the environmental benefits of recycling and efficient automobiles are also evaluated. Various implementation options for this program are detailed including commercial and industrial customer sponsorship, service club competitions, and secondary education applications. Actual utility field experiences and community responses to this program are discussed. This paper begins with background on the pilot of this program followed by a discussion of its major components. The "EcoWatt Benefit Report" is detailed and the benefits for participants are outlined. Testimonials received by this program from community, environmental, and governmental sources are also presented for discussion.
