MA Energy Efficiency Advisory Council (EEAC) Listening Session
Wednesday, February 28, 2018
6 p.m. - 8 p.m.

MA EEAC will receive Public Comments on Energy Efficiency Plans for 2019-2021 at Listening Session @ Great Hall at Codman Square Health Center, Boston


The Energy Efficiency Advisory Council (EEAC) guides the development and monitors the implementation of Massachusetts’ nation-leading energy efficiency plans.

Every three years, the state’s investor-owned electric and gas utilities (program administrators, or PAs) develop a statewide plan, which includes savings and spending targets, implementation strategies, and descriptions of the various initiatives that serve residents and businesses. The EEAC is responsible for reviewing and approving the plan, and working with the PAs on implementation.

The EEAC and Three-Year Plan system were set in place by the Green Communities Act (GCA) of 2008. The GCA requires that the state's investor-owned utilities (and the Cape Light Compact) prepare energy efficiency plans that will "provide for the acquisition of all available energy efficiency and demand reduction resources that are cost-effective or less expensive than supply."

The Department of Public Utilities appoints Council members who serve for five-year terms. The Commissioner of the Department of Energy Resources (DOER) chairs the Council, which is supported by DOER staff. Councilors represent a diverse array of important stakeholders, including Associated Industries of Massachusetts, the Low-Income Energy Affordability Network, and Commonwealth cities and towns.

The Council's approval of the utilities' 2016-2018 Three-Year Plan came after dozens of public meetings and thousands of work hours by Councilors, DOER staff, and energy efficiency program administrators. Once implemented, the Plan is projected to generate $8 billion in economic benefits from a planned investment of $2.6 billion.
