Coalition of Energy Efficiency Organizations Submitted Comments on FERC Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on Grid Reliability and Resilience Pricing

In addition to our stand-alone comments in response to the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NOPR) “Grid Resiliency Pricing Rule,” the Alliance joined comments with several other organizations, including Advanced Energy Economy, Alliance to Save Energy, E4TheFuture, Efficiency First, Home Performance Coalition, and the National Association of Energy Service Companies. The coalition comments emphasize that energy efficiency is the “quickest, cheapest, most abundant, and readily-available supply of all energy resources” and that the use of these technologies “reduces energy usage without requiring any dispatch instructions; reduces capacity requirements for system operators; improves reliability; and lowers energy bills.” Accordingly, we recommend that the Commission, “ensure that the opportunities afforded by energy efficiency are allowed to compete as a part of [efforts to enhance resilience.].”
