Efficiency Saves New England $260 Million in Transmission Costs

January 8, 2013

The multi-state outlook saw a $260 million savings due to state and private programs designed to reduce consumer energy demand.

The energy efficient ripple effect is taking place in New England. While individual efficiency projects continue to grow, they accumulate across a regional grid, where efficiency savings add up quickly, as New England’s grid operator recently discovered.

During the ISO-NE’s energy efficiency forecast the multi-state outlook saw a $260 million savings due to state and private programs designed to reduce consumer energy demand.

One of the nation’s largest grid operators, ISO-NE manages “electricity supply and demand for 14 million people in 6.5 million households and businesses across 8,000 miles of high-voltage transmission lines and 350 generators.”

From 2008-2011, about $1.2 billion was spent across the ISO-NE region resulting in a total reduction of 3,502 gigawatt hours in electricity use, and the savings continue to add up as the years go on.

New England certainly leads the U.S. in the “energy efficiency economy, with Massachusetts, Vermont, Connecticut, and Rhode Island all listed in the annual rankings of the top ten most energy efficient states.”
