Commercial sector and the Sixth Power Plan

The BPA commercial sector team is working to enhance its offering in response to the draft supply curves for the Northwest Power and Conservation Council's Sixth Power Plan with the goal of empowering utility customers to reach their energy efficiency targets. Based on this information, lighting is the largest single source of efficiency potential in the commercial sector, with refrigeration, HVAC, and related equipment also providing significant potential for energy conservation.

In response to the rising targets and potential changes to the Sixth Plan, the commercial sector strategy includes the following components:

Commercial lighting

BPA is increasing investment in the Commercial Lighting Program through the following enhancements:

  • Increased usability of the Commercial and Industrial (C&I) Lighting Calculator Spreadsheet
  • Continued support for programmatic infrastructure through the Northwest Trade Ally Network (TAN)
  • The addition of new measures (including solid state lighting measures) to the core lighting offer as viable sources of cost effective energy savings

EnergySmart Grocer
The commercial sector team will continue to operate the EnergySmart Grocer to capture significant savings available in the commercial refrigeration segment and pursue the creation of additional deemed measures where feasible.
