"PG&E supports a residential pay-for-performance pilot that we understand NRDC will propose in its workshop comments. This pilot design has the potential to facilitate comprehensive upgrades while simultaneously minimizing implementation costs through leveraging private capital."
"NRDC and TURN recommend that the Commission direct the Program Administrators to propose new mechanisms for the 2016 third party programs that rely on meter-measured performance to yield greater savings in both the residential and commercial sectors."
On April 13th, NRDC and TURN proposed in their response to a CPUC ruling on Statewide and Third Party Energy Efficiency Programs "a residential sector pilot based on the existing Home Upgrade program, but with savings paid to an aggregator of projects only when savings show up at the meter using the open-source CalTRACK / Open EE Meter system."
Pacific Gas and Electric supported the proposed pilot concept in their comments to the same proceeding. The fact that these diverse interests can agree on the wisdom of piloting Pay-for-Performance should send a clear signal to the CPUC that they should allow these pilots to go forward in 2016.
The pilot proposal is described in NRDC's CPUC Comments starting on page 11 of the document on the right side of the page.
