ACEEE Report Examines Natural Gas Savings Programs

On January 5, 2012 the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy published the results of their report called “A National Review of Natural Gas Energy Efficiency Programs.” Authors Dan York, Patti Witte, Katherine Friedrich, and Marty Kushler examined the natural gas energy efficiency programs which utilities and other related organizations have had in place for as much as 30 years in some states.

These programs offer services as well as incentives to help customers make changes and investments in their energy efficiency to reduce their energy bill each month.  The growth of these types of programs throughout the country has steadily grown throughout the years.

The report takes a close look at the structure, beginnings, funding and the impact of these natural gas savings programs in forty-one states where they exist.
