Pennsylvania Utility Commission Upholds Act 129 Energy Efficiency Targets for FirstEnergy, PECO


After months of hearings and petitions, at their December 5, 2012 meeting, the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commissions (PUC) upheld PECO’s and FirstEnergy’s energy efficiency savings targets for the second phase of Pennsylvania’s Act 129 Energy Efficiency and Conservation Program (EE&C program).

Phase I of the EE&C program, which began in June 2009 and ends in May 2013, required Pennsylvania’s seven largest electric distribution companies (EDCs) to adopt energy efficiency and conservation plans to reduce expected electricity consumption by 3 percent. Pursuant to an “Implementation Order” issued on August 3, 2012, the EDCs are required to further reduce electricity usage in their service territory by an amount particular to each EDC, ranging from 1.6 percent (West Penn Power Company) to 2.9 percent (PECO) by 2016.
