Updated Self-Funded Energy Savings Guidance -
One decision coming out of EE’s Focus 2028 public process was to increase the self-funded savings share of BPA’s programmatic energy savings from 25% to 30% starting with the FY2018-19 rate period.  As a result, BPA now budgets for only 70% of the programmatic energy savings needed to meet its Council target.  To help utilities with the transition to this higher self-funded savings level, EE has updated its Self-Funded Energy Savings Guidance.  Utilities will have until June 30, 2020 to report their self-funded savings for the FY2018-19 rate period.  The updated Guidance can be found here
