This report considers the perspective of consumers on policy and regulatory issues associated with administration of energy efficiency investments funded by ratepayers of electric and natural gas utilities. Although it may seem that energy end-use consumers are the obvious focus of regulatory energy efficiency efforts, individual consumers are rarely part of these discussions. In their place, associations or state consumer advocates represent diverse consumer perspectives in regulatory proceedings. Is there a risk that the consumer perspective is lost in an ongoing debate among insiders. What are the key points in the debate. And how can the debate be advanced so that consumers benefit from energy efficiency policies.
