New Report: California’s Publicly Owned Utilities making great energy efficiency strides, but significant potential remains to save money and cut pollution

“The POUs have invested almost $1.6 billion in efficiency programs since then, yielding $4.3 billion in total benefits or approximately $3 billion after accounting for the cost of the programs, a return of nearly $3 for every $1 invested. If the POUs achieve their cumulative 2018–2027 energy efficiency targets, they will save an additional 8,000 gigawatt hours (GWh), enough electricity to power nearly all the homes of Los Angeles for one year and avoid nearly 3 million metric tons of carbon dioxide pollution — equivalent to the annual emissions from more than 500,000 cars.”
