Three Investor Owned Utilities File I-937 Conservation Targets with WUTC
Consistent with the statutory obligations under I-937, Washington State's three investor owned utilities filed 2012-2013 conservation targets with the Utilities and Transportation Commission along with a biennial conservation plan. The Commission has currently open dockets for these filings. I-937 requires the utilities to assess their 10 year conservation potential (that is cost effective and achievable analyzed using a methodology consistent with the Power Council) and file biennial targets that are a pro-rata share of that potential. The following represents the 2012-2013 targets as filed this month with the UTC.
