TRC evaluates energy efficiency programs for Idaho Power

Sponsored by

TRC Companies completed a project to evaluate three residential energy efficiency programs offered by Idaho Power, an electric utility serving more than 500,000 customers in southern Idaho and eastern Oregon.

TRC's energy efficiency evaluators reviewed the utility's Heating and Cooling Efficiency Program, Residential Lighting Program and the Northwest Energy Star Homes Program to study their effectiveness and recommend improvements that will help Idaho Power and its customers achieve greater energy savings.

As part of the project, TRC conducted in-depth interviews with Idaho Power staff, regional program partners and trade allies — including builders, contractors, raters, lighting manufacturers and retailers and other stakeholders. TRC also reviewed customer survey feedback and compared the utility's programs to established best practices.

TRC compiled its findings into a report documenting program successes, identifying barriers and providing recommendations for program improvements to help Idaho Power, its trade allies and its customers meet future market needs.

TRC's energy efficiency experts collaborate with clients to achieve deep and continuous energy savings across multiple sectors including homes, schools and businesses.
