Demand Side Management in Rhode Island
Synapse consulted for the Division regarding ongoing electric and gas DSM matters in Rhode Island. This involved ongoing work with the RI DSM Collaborative, set up in 1991. In 2007, Synapse’s Tim Woolf prepared testimony supporting a settlement among multiple parties on the design and funding for natural gas demand-side management programs in the state for 2007-2008. This groundbreaking settlement will result in increased energy efficiency in Rhode Island and offers to help increase efficiency of delivery of both electric and gas DSM programs, which will be jointly developed and implemented for future years.
