Pennsylvania Legislation Would Let Large Energy Users Opt Out of Efficiency Goals

PennA Pennsylvania state representative has introduced legislation that would allow industrial customers to opt-out of the state’s Act 129 energy efficiency targets.

State Senator Lisa Boscola recently introduced the Large Commercial and Industrial Opt-Out of Act 129 legislation, according to an ACEEE blog posting.

Allowing large consumers to opt out is a bad idea, according to ACEEE, which contends that large-consumer energy savings tend to be lower-cost than are savings from other sectors, and energy efficiency deployed anywhere in a system benefits everyone. Allowing large customers to not participate in Act 129 programs would eliminate a proven low-cost resource, leading to higher costs for all ratepayers, says ACEEE.
