Presentation 1Wendy Waudby Successful Energy efficiency programs in the PNW

  • Energy efficiency programs in the PNW
    • How programs are set up
    • How the capital project incentive programs typically work
      • Who to talk to about a project
      • the application process
      • cost effectiveness
      • measurement and verification of savings
    • Mention SEM and O&M programs
  • Common energy saving projects (aeration diffusers, VFDs, blowers)
  • Lesser known energy saving projects (example: controls upgrades)
