Regulatory/Utility Programs

In Virginia, one of the largest opportunities to expand energy efficiency is through utility-sponsored programs. The Grid Transformation and Security Act of 2018 (GTSA) created a roadmap for Virginia’s energy future, including commitments by the two Investor-Owned Electric Utilities (IOUs) to propose over $1B worth of energy efficiency programs through 2028. As part of their Grid Transformation plans, the IOUs will also offer customers the tools to help understand their energy use, thereby accelerating energy efficiency adoption. This presents a huge opportunity to transform our industry in Virginia, as these programs can foster economic growth and improve the lives of all Virginians.
