Guest Blog | May 28, 2010 | Legal Documents

Is Georgia Power Company really committed to energy efficiency, or stuck at “little to no efficiency”? On May 28, 2010, John D. Wilson, SACE’s Director of Research testified before the Georgia Public Service Commission on Georgia Power’s proposed Integrated Resource Planning. John’s testimony focused on opportunities for energy efficiency. He explains that Georgia Power is not considering the full potential of energy efficiency, and that its methods for comparing energy efficiency to power plants put energy efficiency at a disadvantage. If Georgia Power proceeds with its recommended plans, electric rates and pollution levels could be higher than they would be with alternatives that rely on low-cost energy efficiency programs.JDW-GPC-IRP-Testimony.pdf
