The final report compiled by Richard Sedano for the Arkansas Public Service Commission’s investigation into energy efficiency pursuant to Docket 06-004-R. The commission wanted the following problems addressed, the nature and design of energy efficiency and conservation programs that can be started quickly and produce near-term benefits for Arkansans, the appropriate incentives and standards for customers and utilities, the development of energy efficiency market structure principles and guidelines, the advantages of fostering cooperative gas and electric energy efficiency program templates, possible development of a “deemed savings approach” for Arkansas, the development of uniform standards and mechanisms for evaluating, measuring and validating energy efficiency programs, and the proper economic tests to use in determining whether a program is in the public interest.
