|Last DSIRE Review||2002-09-10|
The Florida Public Service Commission (FPSC) has set a goal of saving 1,300 MW of capacity and 1,800 GWh of energy by 2009 through the use of conservation and demand-side management measures. Florida’s five investor-owned electric utilities and two largest municipal utilities, Jacksonville Electric Authority and Orlando Utilities Commission, are required to perform conservation measures pursuant to the requirements of the Florida Energy Efficiency and Conservation Act of 1980.
The FPSC is required to encourage the use of renewables as part of the demand side management programs. The FPSC requires that conservation programs be cost-effective, i.e., less costly than supply-side resources such as new plants or power purchases from other utilities.
