Expert Testimony Regarding Energy Efficiency and Conservation Activities in Nova Scotia

VEIC Principal Consultant Elizabeth Chant provided a testimony with five primary purposes:

  1. to draw attention to the low levels of efficiency investment proposed by both Nova Scotia Power Inc. (NSPI) and EfficiencyOne (E1) for 2016-2018, compared to historical levels and given cost-effectiveness levels attained by E1 programs;
  2. to express concern about how those plans deviate from anticipated activity levels established only a year ago in NSPI’s Integrated Resource Plan (IRP), and approved by the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board (UARB);
  3. to question NSPI’s Alternate plan of radical cuts to efficiency programming for Nova Scotia’s residential sector;
  4. to support the Performance Indicators that E1 has proposed; and,
  5. to establish the importance of and need for mid-course program adjustments.
