Regional benefits

Public utilities in the Pacific Northwest serve more than 2,000 megawatts of industrial load. As regional demand increases it will become increasingly important for all users of electricity to improve their energy efficiency.

In the past, annual energy efficiency savings in the industrial sector have been in the 3aMW to 6aMW range. In an effort to significantly improve upon this performance BPA has launched the ESI program, and all its various components. BPA set new aggressive goals for the ESI program as shown below. Energy savings of this magnitude will be a tremendous aid in meeting the growing energy demand in the region.

Fiscal Year Target Savings
2010 12 aMW
2011 15 aMW

In addition, there are significant benefits for both utilities and industrial facilities participating in the ESI program.
