DSM Programs Incorporating Renewables

February 19, 2002


The Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission's 1995 ruling on demand side management programs allows for the inclusion of renewable energy systems in such utility programs. Renewable energy programs are treated in a similar manner as efficiency in terms of utility cost recovery. This applies to all renewable energy technologies including passive solar design. Because this program is new, the impact of this regulation is it not yet known.
