Focus 2028/Efficiency Forward Program
Out of that engagement came a vision for the energy efficiency program to last at least until the end of the existing Regional Dialogue power sales contracts. BPA’s energy efficiency program meets a fundamental obligation to acquire energy efficiency under the Northwest Power Act and, notwithstanding current low wholesale electricity prices, energy efficiency remains a low-cost hedge against industry, regulatory, and market changes. As such, energy efficiency will continue to play a key role in helping BPA meet its load obligations and deliver the best value for its customers, constituents and the region. BPA recognizes that energy efficiency opportunities are not distributed evenly among its customers and the cost to implement measures can vary across customer service territories.
The changes made as a result of the Focus 2028 engagement attempt to create flexibilities that recognize these realities without jeopardizing BPA’s overall energy efficiency goals.

The Efficiency Forward framework and scope was developed on the foundation of the Post-2011 and Post-2011 Review policies. The following section provides information on the development, public process, draft documentation and final documentation on the Post-2011 processes that established BPA’s current energy efficiency program framework.
