California has led the nation in energy efficiency programs since the 1970s. Due to the state’s efficiency programs, per capita energy use has remained flat, while the rest of the US has increased by about 33 percent. More information on the impacts of current Energy Efficiency Programs can be found here.

The CPUC regulates investor-owned utility (IOU) ratepayer-funded energy efficiency programs. The CPUC works with the IOUs, other program administrators, and vendors to develop programs and measures to transform technology markets within California using ratepayer funds.
