This is the second in a series of posts about leading women in the power, environmental science, advocacy, policy, and business sectors. Each entry stands on its own, and you can view the first post here.

Study Confirms Midwest Is Sitting on a Goldmine of Energy Savings Potential

Posted by Rebecca Stanfield on March 26, 2014 at 4:03pm 0 Comments

An important new federal study confirms that saving energy is far less expensive than generating power in a power plant.  It also shows that here in the Midwest, energy efficiency programs are succeeding at delivering energy savings at rock-bottom costs, translating into lower customer bill savings as we eliminate the need for building new power plants. 

Specifically, the study reports a national average levelized cost of implementing utility energy efficiency programs of about 2 cents per kilowatt hour – compared to the range of 6 to 15 cents per kwh that it would cost to build new power plants.  However, in the Midwest that average cost of saved energy was just 1.4 cents per kwh, which is just a quarter of the cost of the least expensive new power plant options. Again, it would cost between four and ten times more per kwh to build and use a new power plant than it has been to implement…
