36 Potential impacts of energy efficiency Investment: Environmental Benefits • The average 2008 HES “core” participant saved 855 kWh of electricity and 5.7 MMbtu of gas (not adjusting for control group savings) • At average carbon intensity of grid for CT Power & Light, this translates into annual savings of 1,376 lbs CO 2 per customer • Signing up 58,000 additional households for HES could therefore save ~79.8 million lbs CO 2 • LBL Home Energy Saver model examples suggest that deeper retrofits could yield 2x or more this level of savings per household, at least for the hypothetical homes studied
37 IMPACTS OF ENERGY EFFICIENCY INVESTMENT Environment Northeast estimates that making all costeffective investments in efficiency in CT would save consumers over $400 million in energy costs per year. Source: Environment Northeast, “Energy Efficiency 101 for CT.”
